Bristol braces for more protest chaos: Riot gear police move in as hundreds take to street

0


On Sunday 21 police officers were injured, two seriously, when a demonstration against the Government’s Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill descended into violence.

Officers were attacked with rocks, bottles and fireworks whilst the windows of a police station were smashed.

Police vehicles were attacked with one van being torched by the mob.

Footage from the latest protest shows hundreds moving through Bristol chanting ‘Kill the Bill’.

Some demonstrators have been taunting police, who are carrying riot shields and helmets.

Protests are currently illegal due to coronavirus regulations.

The demonstration began at 4pm and is expected to extend into the evening.

Pictures from the scene show social distancing guidelines are not being observed by all demonstrators.

Protestors claim the new legislation will make it easier for authorities to ban future demonstrations.
