Powerful images as thousands join Black Lives Matter UK protests

Thousands of protesters took over central London and demonstrations have also taken place across towns and cities in Wales

Thousands of people taken in protests across the UK as the outcry continues over the death of George Floyd.

Anti-racism demonstrations in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement took place in Cardiff, Swansea, London, Manchester, Newcastle and Sheffield on Saturday afternoon.

African-American Mr Floyd died after a white police officer held him down by pressing a knee into his neck in Minneapolis on May 25, sparking days of protests in the US.

The UK Government has asked people not to take part in demonstrations but images from central London show thousands of protesters taking the knee during a minute’s silence before beginning chants of: “No justice, no peace”.

England’s health secretary Matt Hancock said he could understand why people were “deeply upset” but said people in the UK should not attend large gatherings.
