Po­lice step in af­ter pro­test­ers clash

Daily Express - - NEWS -

PO­LICE had to in­ter­vene last night as Re­main­ers grap­pled with two peo­ple car­ry­ing a “Brexit Now” ban­ner at a de­mon­stra­tion in West­min­ster.

Thou­sands of peo­ple had turned out to protest against plans to sus­pend Par­lia­ment in ral­lies in Lon­don, Ed­in­burgh, Cardiff, Manch­ester and Bris­tol within hours of Boris John­son’s an­nounce­ment. At West­min­ster, crowds blocked traf­fic and some staged a sit-down protest in Par­lia­ment Square chant­ing “stop the coup”.

But two men car­ry­ing the “Brexit Now” ban­ner were grabbed.

Si­mon Hind­marsh, 47, from West York­shire, helped carry it.

He said: “I’m a Leftie, we’re not all Tommy Robin­son sup­port­ers.”
