Police have clashed with demonstrators at a rally in London protesting the latest coronavirus restrictions.
Police officers used batons to control the crowd, after bottles and water were thrown by thousands of demonstrators massed in Trafalgar Square.
At least three protesters and four officers were injured.
The Met Police said the protest was being shut down because the crowd was not complying with social distancing rules and warned fines would be issued.
