Following on from several weeks of anti-racism protests across the UK demonstrators gathered in cities across the country on Saturday.

Thousands of protesters gathered for protests in London, while hundreds of protesters gathered in Glasgow city centre despite being warned by police to stay away.

Police urged anti-racism protestors to discourage violence and keep their distance as events took place amid the coronavirus pandemic.

This is the fourth consecutive weekend protesters took to the streets of the UK to demonstrate following the death of George Floyd in the USA.
