50 Arrests, Police Horse Hurt, Three Officers in Hospital, #MillionMaskMarch

Published

on

A number of people remain in custody after being arrested following the Million Mask March last night, Thursday, 5 November.

Officers made the majority of arrests following two containments in the vicinity of St Martin’s Place, Trafalgar Square and Parliament Street, Whitehall.

These containments were put in place after conditions were breached under Section 12 of the Public Order Act 1986 which stipulated the march must not continue after 21:00hrs.

The 50 arrests were mainly for public order offences (a further breakdown awaits).

Three officers were taken to hospital with injuries sustained policing the protests, the injuries are not believed to be life-threatening.

A man was arrested for assaulting a police officer in connection with one of the incidents where an officer was injured.

The man remains in custody at central London police station (no further details at this time).

During the course of the evening, a police horse suffered injuries near Buckingham Palace in which the police rider was thrown from the horse.

The rider was taken to hospital as a precaution and the horse returned to stables for treatment.

There were a number of isolated incidents during the course of the day and evening.

At approximately 14:25hrs officers on patrol in Trafalgar Square observed three men acting suspiciously.

The officers conducted a stop and search (under Section 1 Police and Criminal Evidence Act (PACE)) and recovered a range of items including knives, smoke and paint grenades, gas canisters and lock picks.

The three men – aged 38, 55 and 5 – were arrested on suspicion of being in possession of offensive weapons and taken to a central London police station where they remain in custody.

At approximately 19:50hrs, police were called to reports of an unattended marked police car on fire in Queen Anne’s Gate SW1.

Officers and London Fire Brigade attended and the fire was extinguished within minutes.

A small number of people were involved in this incident and it was away from the main protests. 

No officers were injured and enquiries into the incident’s circumstances continue. 

Commander BJ Harrington said:
“We facilitate hundreds of protests every year in London peacefully and with the co-operation of the organisers. On this occasion a group of protestors chose not to engage with police or adhere to the conditions of the protest and were intent on criminality.

“I’d like to thank those who conducted themselves in a peaceful manner and as well as Londoners for their patience and tolerance whilst anti-social and intimidating behaviour was happening.”

He added: “Officers have been hospitalised, a police horse suffered injuries and a police car was criminally damaged during the course of the protest which is completely unacceptable. I praise the professionalism and restraint that officers have shown in the face of hostile provocation and enabled the policing operation to pass without major incidents. We will bring those responsible for the criminality to face justice.”
