More than 100 arrests in London after violent clashes

Over 100 people have been arrested following violent protests in London, the Met Police has said.

Police were attacked by protesters, some of whom were far-right activists after thousands gathered claiming they were protecting statues, reports said.

Six police officers suffered minor injuries in the clashes.

A statement from the London Ambulance Service said it had treated 15 patients, including two police officers, for injuries at the protests.
“Six of these patients – all members of the public – have now been taken to hospital.”

Prime Minister Boris Johnson tweeted: “Racist thuggery has no place on our streets. Anyone attacking the police will be met with full force of the law.
