Protesters attack Police Officers and set van on fire as ‘Kill the bill’ march turns violent

Disgraceful scenes in Bristol tonight as protesters attacked police officers and set a van on fire.

Hundreds gathered in Bristol city centre this afternoon to demonstrate against a new Bill which would give the police in England and Wales more power to impose conditions on protests.

The demonstration, which begun on the College Green, turned violent after protesters set a police van alight and threw fireworks and ‘projectiles’ towards officers.
