Scuffles have broken out between protesters and police at a rally in Trafalgar Square organised by opponents of vaccination and coronavirus lockdown measures.
Metropolitan Police officers moved in on the protesters as they congregated near Nelson’s column on Saturday.
The protesters formed human blockades opposite the officers to stop them from making arrests.
There were clashes next to the National Gallery, before officers were pushed back by the loud crowd, who began cheering and chanting.
The ‘Resist And Act For Freedom’ rally saw scores of people gather holding banners and chanting “freedom”.
Addressing the crowd to huge cheers, organiser Kate Shemirani said: “We are the resistance.”
