Four environmental protesters breached security at New Zealand’s parliament building, by climbing up to the roof and sitting on a ledge.
The Greenpeace activists hung a banner to protest against what they say is the government’s failure to act on renewable energy and climate change.
They have secured themselves with climbing ropes and harnesses.
A review of security procedures has been ordered but authorities said the protesters must climb down themselves.
The protest began at dawn when the four climbed to the ledge above the main entrance with the banner and solar panels.
