More than 100 people, including a man in a polar bear suit, were arrested yesterday after refusing to leave a protest against climate change in New York.

In a demonstration dubbed 'Flood Wall Street', around 1,000 protesters marched through the financial district of New York City to draw attention to businesses which they argued funded climate change.

It followed an international day of action, said to be the largest protest ever held on climate change.
