Thousands of demonstrators clashed with police in Australia in protest of the country’s current lockdown restrictions.
Victoria police arrested 235 protesters while six police officers were hospitalised after demonstrators took to the streets of Melbourne.
Approximately 2,000 police officers were deployed to deal with the protesters, who originally gathered in the north-eastern suburbs of Richmond and Hawthorn.
As well as the 235 arrests, 193 people will be fined for breaching public health orders.
According to Victoria police commander Mark Galliott, the remaining group were arrested for offences which included assaulting police, rioting behaviour, weapons and drug offences.
Ten officers were injured while six were hospitalised, with three officers remaining in hospital with injuries including torn muscles, broken bones and bruises.
Video footage is currently circulating on social media of the protests, with one video revealing a crowd of protesters charging at police.
