    New photos: Protestors target Bullring shops in tax protest

    Photo by Andy Haden

    Britain's largest fashion store was forced to close on Saturday as activists carried out a series of protests against tax avoidance by big businesses
    Security staff removed a number of campaigners who chanted slogans directed at billionaire Topshop owner Sir Philip Green, whose business five years ago paid a £1.2 billion dividend to his wife, Tina, who resides in Monaco.

    Sir Philip was this year appointed as an adviser to the Government on efficiency in the public sector.
    The protest was organised by UK Uncut, which used social networking sites Twitter and Facebook to carry out a national day of action against stores owned by Sir Philip's Arcadia Group, which also owns Dorothy Perkins, Burton, Evans and Miss Selfridge.
