In total 10 people were arrested for offences including assault on police, obstruction offences, attempted GBH, and public order offences. Officers managed to keep disruption in the capital to a minimum, despite the disparate nature of the protest which spread from Parliament Square to Marylebone.
Officers want to speak to the individuals pictured in connection with violent disorder which took place in Parliament Square between 19.00hrs and 20.00hrs. This included street furniture being thrown at officers.
Detective Chief Inspector Andy Barnes, from the Met’s Public Order Command, said: “This was a concerted violent attack on officers by a minority who were determined to commit crime and had no interest in peaceful protest. This type of behaviour will not be tolerated and we will make every effort to trace these individuals and hold them accountable for their actions. I would appeal for help from the public in identifying these individuals so they can be brought to justice.”
