18 arrested in London anti-lockdown protest

London, Oct 25 (TIWN) At least 18 people were arrested at a protest in London which was staged against the UK government's cornavirus-induced lockdown restrictions, the media reported.

Large crowds gathered outside Buckingham Palace, where police were stationed, before moving on to Trafalgar Square.

Some protesters carried placards calling for "freedom" and an end to the "tyranny" of Covid-19 restrictions.

The Metropolitan Police said the crowds had been dispersed but urged people to continue social distancing.

There was some disruption on Westminster Bridge as officers tried to break up demonstrators.

The force said three officers had suffered minor injuries.

Arrests were made for a variety of offences, including breaching coronavirus regulations, assaulting an emergency service worker and for violent disorder.

The capital was placed into tier two lockdown restrictions earlier this week.
