Riot police clash with G8 protesters in London

Hundreds of officers were out on the streets to keep today’s action under control throughout London’s West End amid protests against the G8 summit.

Police scuffled with scores of anti-G8 demonstrators in central London and surrounded a building where protest organisers were meeting before a summit of world leaders in UK next week.

Scuffles broke out when police moved in to arrest individuals as a main group of around 30 to 50 activists, mostly dressed in black, banged on drums and blew whistles as they ran through the capital.
