PROTESTERS in Royston took to the streets to urge world leaders to take action on climate change.

A hastily arranged vigil took place in the town last week, led by Carlo Zambonini, who collected signatures on a petition at The Cross.

The protest was held to coincide with the United Nations climate change conference being held in Denmark, which drew to a close last weekend.

Mr Zambonini said: "Despite apparent natural disasters in Cockermouth, Bangladesh, tsunamis in South East Asia, Kenya, and Peru, opinions on climate change range from denial to scepticism and concern."
