Protesters campaigning for parents' rights have invaded a British Broadcasting Corporation Television studio halting Britain's televised national lottery draw.

Graham Manson, spokesman for the Real Fathers 4 Justice group said that two members of the organization had been involved in the demonstration, rushing forward from seats in the studio audience.

Protesters Ray Barry and Nadine Radford carried out the protest to denounce what they claim is "the lottery faced by people every day in the family law courts, Manson said.

"They chose the show to protest because it is live, high- profile and watched by so many people. They also wanted to highlight the fact that so many people find themselves on the losing side of the law court lottery," he said.
