Police have removed placards from peace activist Brian Haw at the scene of his five-year vigil outside Parliament.
Officers went to Parliament Square in the early hours of Tuesday to deal with alleged breaches of Mr Haw's demonstration conditions.
A Metropolitan Police spokeswoman said officers removed the placards at 0235 BST over allegations that Mr Haw had continually breached conditions of the Serious Organised Crime and Police Act 2005.
The legislation bans unauthorised protests within a 1km zone of Parliament Square and requires any permitted protests to cover no more than three metres.
