The anti-war protester Brian Haw has died after battling lung cancer, his family have announced.
Mr Haw, 62, died in his sleep while receiving treatment for the disease in Germany.
The veteran protester camped out in Parliament Square in London for 10 years.
Successive attempts to move him failed after the High Court said it would be a breach of his human rights.
In a statement on Mr Haw’s website, his family said: ‘It is with deepest regret that I inform you that our father, Brian, passed away this morning.
‘As you know he was battling lung cancer, and was having treatment in Germany.
‘He left us in his sleep and in no pain, after a long, hard fight.
With your help we have been able to share months more than we should have had with him, and for that we are eternally grateful.’
