Chanting “I can’t breathe”, the last words uttered by the 46-year-old African-American man following his arrest, the crowd crammed into the square despite the ban on gatherings and rules on social distancing.

Some others held up placards saying “Racism has no place” and “I can’t breathe”.

Among the protesters was Nina Mahonty, an American of South Asian descent, who has lived in london for six years.

Nina said: “I am struggling to watch my country burn and there is nothing I can do from here so this was the next best thing.

“I know it’s precarious because coronavirus is going on right now but if coronavirus doesn’t take the lives of our black brothers and sisters, then the police will.”
