London George Floyd protests live: Hundreds of people will descend on the U.S. Embassy for the new Black Lives Matter rally


London mayor Sadiq Khan praises protest but condemns violence

Khan congratulated those who protested peacefully on Saturday, but said those who turned violent “gave up on the cause”.

He said: “To the thousands of Londoners who demonstrated peacefully today, I am with you and I share your anger and your pain.

“The brutal murder of George Floyd must be a catalyst for change in the world.”

He added: “No country, city, police force or institution can take responsibility for doing better.

“We must unite and eliminate racism wherever it is found. Black Lives Matter.

“To the small minority who were violent and threw glass bottles and flares – you endangered a safe and peaceful demonstration and abandoned this important cause.”
