United Kingdom Alerte de sécurité

Police arrest 18 anti-lockdown protesters in Central London on October 24; avoid all future demonstrations as a precaution

TIMEFRAME expected from 25/10/2020, 12h00 until 27/10/2020, 11h59 (UTC). COUNTRY/REGION London


Police officers in London arrested at least 18 protesters on Saturday, October 24, during demonstrations taking place over coronavirus disease (COVID-19) lockdown restrictions. Three police officers also suffered minor injuries whilst attempting to break up protests. Demonstrators gathered at Hyde Park from 12:00 (local time), and related gatherings were also reported outside Buckingham Palace, and at Trafalgar Square. Disruptions were also reported on Westminster Bridge. The arrests were reportedly made for offences including breaching COVID-19 regulations, assaulting an emergency service worker, and for violent disorder.

Similar demonstrations have taken place in recent days, particularly after the capital moved tier two lockdown restrictions, the second-highest COVID-19 alert level, following an uptick in cases. Further demonstrations are likely in the near term. A heightened security presence and localized travel disruptions should be anticipated in the vicinity of any rally.


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