"Residents of a housing estate in east London have travelled to the offices of the US investment company that has bought their homes to protest against its eviction plans.

"Parents, children and grandparents from the New Era estate in Hackney travelled across the capital on buses to the Westbrook Partners HQ in Mayfair amid growing political support for their cause and a new agreement by the company not to change tenancy agreements or increase rents before July 2015.

"The comedian and political activist Russell Brand, the Labour MP Diane Abbott and the leaders of the tenants' group are to lead the protest and then march to Downing Street to present a petition to the prime minister. Almost 300,000 people have signed the petition, which calls for the owners to keep rents at an affordable level so existing tenants can afford to stay."
