Clashes broke out between police and far-Right protesters who attempted to reach the Cenotaph in London. 

The protesters broke down barriers at the entrance to the Cenotaph and started having pitched battles with officers, who then formed a physical barrier to separate them. 

Officers hit out at those who pushed through with batons, while some protesters threw bottles. 

The group shouted “you’re a disgrace” and “you’re not English anymore” at police, also adding “we want our country back”.

At 11am, a two-minute silence was held to mark Armistice Day and a wreath-laying ceremony took place at the Cenotaph.

The crowds of protestors cheered at the military during the service at the Cenotaph. After the two-minute silence they began to quietly disperse, with one heard asking “where are these Palestinian protestors then”?

Hundreds of thousands of pro-Palestine protesters are due to gather at the Marble Arch for a three-mile march to Nine Elms, which is due to commence at 12pm.
