Protests against corporate tax dodgers shut down dozens of high street shops in more than 50 towns and cities across Britain before Christmas.

The blockades targeted chains that have avoided billions of pounds in tax.

On London’s Oxford Street, activists gathered inside Topshop’s flagship store, pretending to browse.

Then, on a whistle, they started throwing footballs as part of a “school sports day”, to highlight that the tax avoided by boss Philip Green would be enough to pay for school sports the Tories are cutting.
