Following the recent events at the weekend, a peaceful protest sadly turned violent and saw police attacked and historic monuments vandalised. Many protestors had marched in peace and it was later in the day that violence erupted as police horses were targeting with bikes and flares. Historic monuments were urinated upon and a protestor was seen jumping on the Cenotaph and attempting to burn the Union Jack.
The Romford MP Andrew Rosindell told the Havering Daily:
“I completely condemn the anarchist hooligans we have seen committing acts of vandalism and violence on the streets of London They show no respect for our country or the rule of law and selfishly put the lives of others at risk by ignoring social distancing.
“Those who attempted to set light to the Union Jack at the Cenotaph and graffitied over the statue of Sir Winston Churchill should hang their heads in shame. They abuse the freedom that others have fought for and their cowardly behaviour should be severely punished.
“In Havering we are a happy and united community and these extremists on the radical left who are currently seeking to divide us, will fail.”
