    Some of the videos that were apparently recorded at the rally show police officers being pelted with a variety of projectiles, with even a bicycle being launched at them.

    A Black Lives Matter demonstration held in central London today was marred by an unfortunate incident when one of the mounted policemen present at the scene got knocked off his horse after "the crowd started throwing bottles and other objects at the police" and the animal bolted, Sky News reports.

    According to the Daily Mirror, at least one protester got injured.

    A number of videos recorded at the scene have emerged online, showing law enforcement officers being pelted with a variety of projectiles - with someone even throwing a bicycle at them – and a riderless horse galloping along the street as protesters scatter.
