Protesters have clashed with police in heated scenes at the Cenotaph in London today as others gathered in towns and cities around the country.

Earlier, police in London told those planning on joining demonstrations that they must be off the streets by 5pm on Saturday. A Black Lives Matter protest planned for today in London was cancelled amid fears of clashes with members of right wing groups who have turned up to surround landmarks in central London.

There were other protests taking place today in other towns and cities across the country.
