George Floyd: UK protesters gather in solidarity with US

Thousands of protesters have marched through central London in an overwhelmingly peaceful Black Lives Matter demonstration sparked after the police killing of George Floyd in America.

The demonstrators, the vast majority of whom were under 30, chanted: 'No justice, no peace, no racist police', 'I canโ€™t breathe' and 'the UK is not innocent', in a lockdown-defying demonstration that was largely organised through word of mouth and social media away from established anti-racism groups.
