Hundreds continue to march through streets across central London despite Covid warnings from police and the Home Secretary.
After thousands gathered at Parliament Square to protest the Metropolitan Police's actions at the Sarah Everard vigil on Saturday, many stayed on to block Westminster Bridge, stage a sit-in demonstration outside New Scotland Yard and march through streets across the capital.
Priti Patel earlier urged people not to gather in protests over Covid-19 fears but warnings have largely gone unheeded, with protesters chanting "whose streets? Our streets" as they walked through main roads and back streets.
Police officers are facilitating the march and show no signs of intervening following the controversial events over the weekend.
It comes as the Prime Minister said he was "deeply concerned" by the Metropolitan Police's handling of the event at the weekend, echoing criticism expressed across parliament.
Patsy Stephenson, the woman who was pictured being arrested on the ground at the vigil on Clapham Common, exclusively told LBC she "wasn't surprised" at how the police treated her.
