"Residents have held a sit-in protest in a north London library after a council decision to close it.
"About 11 people refused to leave Friern Barnet Library for five hours after Barnet Council decided at a meeting on Wednesday night to shut the facility.
"The council said the decision was taken last July and a new library would open in 2013. The closure will save 20% of its £6m library budget."
