Liverpool anti Covid-19 lockdown - protesters clash with cops

HUNDREDS of angry anti-lockdown protesters chanting "freedom" clashed with cops Saturday.

It comes as England has more than two weeks left of the second lockdown to contend with.

Protesters brandished signs and walked in close-knit groups through Bournemouth, Ipswich and Liverpool on Saturday afternoon.

Several arrests were made in Liverpool and Ipswich, where police condemned those risking spreading the virus.

Three were taken into custody in Ipswich, with cops saying there is no exemption for people taking part in public protests.

A spokesman added that the force would not tolerate any kind of public gathering.

And in Liverpool, where a Dispersal Zone was set up in anticipation of the protesters, 15 people were arrested.
