In central London, anti-lockdown demonstrators have overwhelmed police officers and begun hurling smoke grenades – Report Dailystar.
In central London, the party smashed through a police fence and made their way down Oxford Street.
Journalist Matt Capon of the Daily Mirror tweeted: “Pretty chaotic scenes. The police tried to split up the crowds and order people to disperse, and succeeded for a short time.”
“However they’ve now formed up again and are now marching down Oxford Street.”
Residents were earlier warned by the Metropolitan Police to stop the protest.
The force said in a statement: ‘Currently, protest is not a permitted exception under the existing coronavirus legislation from the ban on gatherings.
The government has implemented stringent controls nationwide to help deter the transmission of coronavirus. This suggests that any person gathered to protest faces law enforcement action.
Anti-lockdown opposition movements have called on supporters to fly this morning to Kings Cross, London.
By 11 am after police made arrests of those arriving at the station, the location had been updated.
Tens of thousands of individuals have been motivated by recent events.
Ch Supt Stuart Bell said: “Not only does this type of behavior violate the law, it also risks spreading the virus between multiple regions of the nation.”
“We urge people not to travel to London for this reason, and this is also why we will take appropriate enforcement action if this happens.”
