Anti-lockdown protesters clash with police in London

Police said 16 people were arrested and nine officers injured during clashes at anti-lockdown demonstrations in central London.

Thousands of people massed in Trafalgar Square on Saturday carrying signs, flags and placards to take part in a “we do not consent” rally – with none appearing to wear face coverings or to social distance.

But officers clashed with protesters when police tried to shut the event down because crowds were not complying with social-distancing rules.
