(Reuters) – Police made arrests late Friday in the city of Bristol, southwest England, after protests turned violent and people thrown projectiles at them, police said.
“Projectiles, including eggs and glass bottles, are thrown at officers. Protesters also pull on officers’ signs while lasers shine in their faces,” local Avon and Somerset Police said in a tweet at https://twitter.com / ASPolice / status / 1375577284812365827.
“We will not tolerate violent disturbance,” added local police.
Thousands of protesters had gathered in the city center ignoring COVID-19 restrictions to protest a government law that would give police new powers to curb street protests.
