Anti-lockdown rally in London following implementation of new Covid-19 restrictions

Thousands of protesters have gathered for an anti-lockdown demonstration in central London today, prompting clashes with police as officers tried to shut the event down.

Crowds massed in Trafalgar Square carrying a variety of signs, flags and placards to take part in a “we do not consent” rally.

Few members of the protest appeared to be wearing face coverings and social distancing was not observed.

The new restrictions announced by the UK government include a ban on gatherings of more than six people and a curfew on pubs and restaurants.
