‘Kill the Bill’ protests across England

EMERGENCY ALERTS

Hundreds of people have gathered for 'Kill the Bill' protests across England today.

Demonstrations have taken place in cities including London, Leeds and Manchester - with more planned for tonight and tomorrow.

Following an easing of England restrictions, the protests are now lawful – providing organisers submit a risk assessment and take steps to ensure the gatherings are safe. The proposed Police, Crime Sentencing and Courts Bill would give police in England and Wales more power to impose conditions on non-violent protests, including those deemed too noisy or a nuisance. Those convicted are liable to fines or jail terms.
