Protesters occupied a bank and held a makeshift gig inside over claims that its practices mean  insecurity for renters.

Dozens of campaigners from tenant's union Acorn took over the TSB branch in Western Road, Brighton, calling for changes to the bank's buy-to-let mortgages.

They were armed with megaphones, placards and accompanied by a folk band which performed inside.

They continued their campaign outside when they were kicked out of the building.

Acorn handed a list of demands to the bank calling for it to remove conditions which mean landlords with TSB buy-to-let mortgages cannot offer leases over 12 months long.

A spokesman for TSB said they were aware of the action and were "looking into the issues raised".
