Video shows the noisy protest that disrupted a Portsmouth City Council.

The demonstration, filmed by Jason Kay of the UKNIP agency, has been followed by a complaint to police by the leader of council.

Cllr Donna Jones says she has been subjected to a prolonged ‘harassment’ campaign by domestic abuse protesters.

She says she raised concerns to Hampshire Constabulary as she feared a confetti gun fired during a debate over the budget, which included plans to take £130,000 away from the domestic abuse team, was aimed at her.
