Several hundreds of people gathered on Saturday in central London to express their protest against the coronavirus-related restrictions. Some of the demonstrators clashed with police officers.
"Officers have made over 60 arrests following groups gathering in London today. These were for a number of different offences, including breaching coronavirus restrictions. We expect this number to rise. We continue to urge people to go home," the police wrote on Twitter.
Videos from the protest have been shared online.
