A female Police Officer is recovering in hospital after she suffered a collapsed lung, broken collarbone and shatter ribs after she was thrown off her horse.

The police officer was injured after being unseated from her horse during yesterday’s Black Lives Matter protest she suffered a broken collar bone, broken ribs and a collapsed lung.

The officer who is still undergoing treatment within hospital is likely to be off work for up to four months to enable her recovery the Metropolitan Police Federation has said.

The officer was violently flung into traffic lights outside of Downing Street in Central London after a protester hurled a bike and other missiles at her horse in attempts to de-seat the officer.

This spooked the horsed and caused the animal to blot riderless back down Whitehall and safely back to the stables while the officer laid motionlessly on the ground.

The officer was slammed into a traffic light and was knocked unconscious protestors cheers as other officers rushed to the aide of the officer.

Sadly 14 officers were injured during shocking clashes with a minority of protesters within Central London on Saturday who were clearly there with intent of causing violence and highjacking the Black Lives Matter protest.

The Black Lives Matter protest in London remained peaceful throughout the day however violence occurred on Whitehall at 7pm when most of the protestors had gone home for the day.

The Black Lives Matter in London protests are to oppose the racism and to demand justice for George Floyd.

Metropolitan Police Federation chairman Ken Marsh has said the police officer who fell from her horse during a protest in central London on Saturday has ‘quite nasty’ injuries.

He told BBC Breakfast: ‘She’s stable – she has some quite nasty injuries which she sustained. And the horse is fine.’

He added: ‘I think my colleagues – as always – were absolute heroes… the abuse they took. They tried to facilitate the public behaviour… I had nothing but pride in what I saw. It was horrendous seeing my colleagues being injured.’
