St. George's Day Rally: Clashes with Police and Far-Right Supporters in Central London, Six Arrests Made

A St George's Day rally in central London resulted in clashes between far-right supporters and police.
Crowds, including some far-right groups, attempted to push through police lines near Whitehall.

The situation escalated, leading to the deployment of police on horseback.

At least six people were arrested, one for alleged animal cruelty after a police horse was targeted, and four more during clashes outside a pub after the rally.

A far-right rally led by Stephen Yaxley-Lennon (Tommy Robinson) and attended by Laurence Fox caused disorder in London's Trafalgar Square.

Police arrested one person for assault and three for assaulting an emergency worker.

The group had earlier tried to force their way through a cordon near Richmond Terrace, leading to clashes with authorities.

The Metropolitan police had been in discussions with the event organizer prior to the incident.

A post on X warned of far-right groups and football club supporters attending an event on Richmond Terrace in London.

The event, which was scheduled to start after 3pm and end by 5pm, was meant to take place within a designated area marked in pink on a map.

However, disorder broke out an hour before the event began, leading to incidents such as a police horse being struck and police dealing with groups of men on Whitehall.

Scotland Yard reported the disorder.
