 London police broke up a rally in Hyde Park against the coronavirus lockdown on Saturday, arresting 19 protesters for flouting social distancing rules, Deputy Assistant Commissioner Laurence Taylor said, APA reports quoting Sputnik.

"Officers once again took a measured approach and tried to engage the group to disperse. They clearly had no intention of doing so, and so it did result in 19 people being arrested, and a further ten being issued with a fixed penalty notice", he said.
