The Tories’ and Boris Johnson’s victory has not been well received by all, as hundreds of protesters descended on Downing Street to “defy Tory rule”.
Standard News reported that a heavy police presence was seen close to the Cenotaph in Whitehall, which was cordoned off as clashes broke out.
Demonstrators carrying placards with the slogans No to Boris Johnson, No to Racism and Defy Tory Rule cried out ‘Oh Jeremy Corbyn’ and let off red smoke flares during angry protests.
They travelled down Whitehall before moving towards Millbank and Horseferry Road, shouting “the people, united, we will never be defeated”.
In reaction to the protests, Police were seen trying to contain the crowds with a cordon.
The protests comes on the heels of a Tories victory, winning 80-seat majority in a historic election which saw Labour suffer its worst election since 1935.
The opposition party was plunged into a bitter civil war after the general election, with leader Jeremy Corbyn pressed to quit quickly after losing 59 seats in the party’s worst result since 1935.
