Thousands gather in Birmingham for Black Lives Matter protest

Thousands of protesters gathered in Birmingham for a Black Lives Matter (BLM) demonstration over the death of George Floyd in the US. Crowds gathered in the city’s Centenary Square on Thursday afternoon, where a silence was observed in memory of Mr Floyd. Demonstrators, many wearing protective face masks, had been due to congregate in nearby Victoria Square but moved to the larger area to aid social distancing.
