At least 15 police officers injured in unauthorised London music event

British police have said 15 officers were injured when disorder broke out following an unauthorised music event in the Brixton area of south London overnight.

Police said they had been called to the street event but the crowd refused to engage with officers.

“The event continued and more officers attended the scene and the group became hostile towards officers,” the police said.

Police said 15 officers were injured, none seriously although two required hospital treatment, and a small number of police cars were damaged.
