#AceNewsReport – Dec.07: A number of arrests have been made following a protest in central London today: The Met had issued a reminder to those attending the demonstration in the Aldwych area that strict regulations introduced by the Government remained in place to help prevent the spread of Coronavirus: This meant that anyone gathering for the protest risked enforcement action by officers: 13 people in total were arrested for breach of Covid regulations: Four of those people were subsequently de-arrested after they provided their details to officers and were issued a fine. The other nine remain in custody:
Protest in central London on Sunday 13-people were arrested and 3 later released who were letting off fireworks were warned and had them confiscated as officers tried to enforce tier 2 restrictions against spread of #COVID19
Three teenagers who were seen to set off a firework towards a crowd were spoken to by police and fireworks were confiscated from them: It can now be clarified that they were not arrested:
1./ There were no reports of any injuries to attendees or officers.
2./ Crowds have now dispersed and traffic is flowing freely again.
Commander Paul Brogden, said: “I would like to thank the officers who policed this protest under very challenging circumstances, and Londoners for their patience following the disruption to traffic caused by the numbers in attendance: “We had issued a reminder urging those who were planning to attend to reconsider but, unfortunately, a number of people decided not to follow that advice. A proportionate policing plan was in place, the demonstration has now concluded and those in attendance have begun to leave: “I would like to remind everyone that although London has now moved to Tier Two, the capital remains in the midst of a pandemic; it is vital that we all play our part in the fight against Covid-19:
“ If you attend a gathering that breaches the regulations, you may be committing an offence, which is punishable by a fine. In certain circumstances, if you hold a gathering of over 30 persons and you do not meet the requirements of the regulations you might be committing a different offence, which is also punishable by a fine.”
