The BBC says:

Anti-war protester Brian Haw has won his latest legal battle to maintain his demonstration in Parliament Square.

Police claimed Mr Haw, 57, from Redditch, Worcestershire, posed a threat as terrorists could hide bombs under his many banners and placards.

But District Judge Quentin Purdy said he had not breached conditions imposed on him by the Metropolitan Police (Met) as they were unclear and invalid.

Mr Haw has held a continuous vigil outside Parliament since 2 June 2001.

A small victory against Blair's attempts at a police state, but only a small victory. It does nothing for the British people as a whole, only for Mr Haw.
