THREE people were arrested today following a demonstration in which purple paint was splattered over the door of an Ipswich office.

Five protesters waving placards and displaying banners huddled outside the Children and Family Court Advisory and Support Service (CAFCASS) in Foundation Street, Ipswich at around 10.30am today.

They were demonstrating over "unfair" treatment fathers receive in court custody battles.

They claim CAFCASS workers are "under-trained" and "under-resourced". that means that their decisions "often result in the breaking of the sacred bond between parent and child for no reason".
