A member of the protest group Fathers for Justice has been arrested after a painting of the Queen was defaced with paint in Westminster Abbey today.

Police said a 41-year-old man has been arrested and the group said it believed he was a member but insisted it was not an official protest.

The group wrote on its Twitter feed that one of its members “has written on a portrait of the Queen in Westminster Abbey begging for help before Father’s Day”.

In a statement, Fathers for Justice identified the man arrested as “dad of two Tim Haries from Doncaster”. Campaign Director Jolly Stanesby, said: “Up to four million children will be without a father this Father’s Day. Tim Haries has lost all contact with his children and felt he had nothing to lose by appealing directly to the Queen for help by spraying his plea onto her portrait.”
