Teenagers have staged a “lie-in” outside White House as students across the country mobilise to protest the lack of gun control in the US in the wake of one of the worst school shootings in the country's history. A group, known as Teens for Gun Reform, had 17 members lie down outside the White House to symbolise the number of people who lost their lives at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, Florida on Valentine's Day. Protests in Florida and beyond have criticised President Donald Trump's tepid response to the shooting, and several others were quick to join those on the ground.
