Protesters denouncing perceived insufficient government action to address a recent series of stabbing attacks in London obstructed traffic on London Bridge on Wednesday, April 17. Demonstrators, rallying as part of "#OperationShutdown," reportedly gathered near Downing Street, spending nearly two hours on Whitehall before moving toward the Houses of Parliament and staging a sit-in protest on London Bridge.
Residual traffic disruptions are possible in London over the coming hours.
Several stabbing incidents have been reported in north London in recent days and weeks; no such incidents have been reported in central London. Police have opened an investigation into potential connections between some of the attacks.
Individuals in London are advised to monitor developments to the situation, prepare for residual traffic disruptions, and adhere to all instructions issued by the local authorities.
