Hundreds of people have gathered in Trafalgar Square to show solidarity with protesters in the US who are demonstrating following the death of a man during an arrest, as well as alleged police brutality in the UK, APA reports citing Sky News.

At 1pm, those gathered in central London knelt in tribute to George Floyd, a black man who died in Minneapolis on Monday after a police officer knelt on his neck for more than eight minutes while arresting him.

Those unable to attend the Black Lives Matter demonstration were urged to kneel in solidarity wherever they could.
