Anti-Boris Johnson protesters clash with police in London
Hundreds of people protesting Boris Johnson's victory in the UK general election clashed with police officers outside the parliament, in Westminster, London.
The demonstrators, brandishing signs that read ‘Defy Tory Rule’ and ‘Refugees Welcome’, walked at speed from outside Johnson’s Downing Street residence to Trafalgar Square, The Guardian reported.
Eyewitnesses at the scene described the protests as 'chaotic'. At least one demonstrator’s face was bloodied during the brief exchange.
It comes after the Tories won an 80-seat majority in a historic election which saw Labour suffer its worst election defeat since 1935.
The opposition party was plunged into a bitter civil war after the general election, with Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn pressed to quit quickly after losing 59 seats in the party's worst result since 1935. 101/211/207
