SIX UK UNCUT activists were arrested following a protest at Topshop’s Oxford Street store against its owner Sir Philip Green.
The group chanted “Philip Green, pay your taxes”, in protest against his use of accounts held in Monaco. Six activists gained access to the store and were subsequently arrested.
UK Uncut also staged demonstrations against Vodafone stores across the country. It claims that the phone company failed to pay a tax bill of £6bn. The Public Accounts Committee has said it will look into the £1.25bn deal between the company and HM Revenue & Customs.
Saturday was expected to be the busiest day of the year for retailers. UK Uncut said it held demonstrations in Birmingham, Nottingham, Glasgow and Manchester.
