Simon Anderton, 56, is a supporter of Real Fathers for Justice. Eight days ago, on Father’s Day, he scaled the Tyne Bridge, and unfurled a banner with ‘Happy Fatherless Day’ and the campaign group’s URL.
He’s planning on staying for another six days, and yesterday 50 supporters gathered at the bridge in a show of support. They included Ray Barry, leader of the campaign group.
The action has sparked some mainstream media interest, and this piece in the Mirror includes the inspired review Simon posted on Trip Advisor.
