Large crowds of demonstrators can be heard chanting and seen carrying banners as they marched through the town centre. Many can be seen with a traditional face coverings, meanwhile others can be spotted wearing terrifying balaclavas.

Groups started to gather at College Green from around 6pm, the same location as the four previous protests in the past nine days.

The protests were sparked following the Government’s decision to press ahead with a new Police and Crime Bill, which is set to give authorities more powers to curb demonstrations.

This evening, several activists were heard issuing rallying cries to the gathered crowds, one person was heard shouting “let’s go to the Bearpit. We can shut down Bristol”.

Meanwhile, others yelled “peaceful protest” as well as “Kill the Bill”.

A small number of uniformed police officers have been deployed to the scene and were seen walking in front of the crowds.

In a statement, Avon and Somerset Police said: “Around 150 people are continuing to take part in a peaceful protest on College Green in Bristol – and our police liaison officers have had positive dialogue with many of them throughout the evening so far.”

The force later added: “The protestors are taking part in a march towards the city centre so there may be some disruption to traffic.”
