United Kingdom Alerte de sécurité

Demonstrators gather in London on October 17 after city moves into higher COVID-19 alert level; avoid all protests as a precaution

TIMEFRAME expected from 17/10/2020, 12h00 until 19/10/2020, 11h59 (Europe/London). COUNTRY/REGION London

Event

Demonstrators gathered in London on Saturday, October 17, after the capital moved to the second-highest coronavirus disease (COVID-19) alert level at midnight on Friday, October 16. Demonstrators marched along Oxford Street amid a heightened security presence; however, the event passed off peacefully.

The high-risk level, which comes as the UK experiences an uptick in virus cases, bans people from meeting anybody outside their household or support bubble and forbids more than six people from meeting outdoors. Areas are being assessed on a case-by-case basis in the UK, and localized restrictions are being implemented according to the COVID-19 threat level.

A heightened security presence and localized travel disruptions should be anticipated in the vicinity of any rally. Further demonstrations surrounding the issue are to be anticipated in the coming days. 

Advice

Those in London are advised to monitor developments, avoid large gatherings as a precaution, and adhere to all instructions issued by the local authorities.
