An depiction of Boris Johnson as a criminal has been projected on to the side of the Houses of Parliament.
Campaign group Led By Donkeys unveiled the image in response to the prime minister's suspension of parliament - which a Scottish court has found was unlawful.
A video widely shared on Twitter of the animated faux police mugshot shows Johnson holding a sign which reads: "Parliament make the law. Boris Johnson says he might break it. Is the prime minister a criminal?"
Another caption on the sign simply reads: "Liar."
On Saturday evening Johnson was pictured dressed as a green duck on the side of Cardiff Castle accompanied by the words: "Lame Duck. Totally useless prime minister."
The image was a reference to a Conservative Party advert depicting Jeremy Corbyn as a chicken, in a dig at his decision not to support a general election.
