“The mostly peaceful demonstrations in central London have ended. My thanks to the crowd who engaged with us and my colleagues for their hard work. There were 6 arrests for a variety of crimes and unacceptably injured 4 officers. I wish you one speedy recovery, “Commander Catherine Roper, Metropolitan Police Crime Prevention, Inclusion and Participation Leader, said.
Earlier, the officer had reported that a protester was arrested after throwing a bottle at police officers outside Downing Street.
“A protester was arrested outside Downing Street after throwing a bottle at police officers. Violence will not be tolerated. We encourage the rest of the crowd to peacefully continue their demonstration,” he tweeted.
Police were also seen interacting with crowds in Parliament Square, which were causing a disruption.
This comes as Covid-19 restrictions were lifted in the UK on Monday. However, authorities still recommend wearing face masks and using the NHS Covid-Pass. On Saturday, dozens of people gathered in central London to protest against vaccination and the passage of the coronavirus.
Britain has reported another 31,795 coronavirus cases in the last 24-hour period, according to government figures released Saturday.
