A picture has been shared on Twitter of a large rock that was thrown at police officers during a weekend of violent disorder in London.
@MPSFootballUnit tweeted a picture of the large rock with the caption:
“No, it’s not an asteroid.
“It’s one of the many things we had thrown at us last night between Parliament Square and Elephant and Castle.
“Multiple Officers injured from our line alone. Unacceptable”.
The tweet came after a weekend of violent protests which spanned over three days in central London as groups of violent individuals were determined to hijack the mostly peaceful demonstrations.
Amongst those injured included a mounted officer who was flung from her horse after it bolted when violent thugs threw missiles at several police horses.
The Met’s Mounted Branch had charged a violent group who were throwing rocks, flares, fireworks and bottles at officers who were not allowed to don their personal protective equipment during the early part of the violence.
