PM responds to violence as more than 100 arrests made during ‘guard our monuments’ protest
Boris Johnson has condemned violence by protesters in central London on Saturday as “racist thuggery” in a post on Twitter. “Anyone attacking the police will be met with full force of the law. These marches and protests have been subverted by violence and breach current guidelines,” he wrote.
The prime minister continued: “Racism has no part in the UK and we must work together to make that a reality.”
