Protesters and police face off at Downing Street gates as hundreds rally against new Tory government
‘Hundreds of protesters took to the streets to express their anger about the new Tory government.
The anti-Conservative protesters, some holding placards reading “I pledge to resist” and “Stop the cuts”, took part in the rally organised just a day into the new Parlimament.
It is believed to have started outside Conservative headquarters, where just over 24 hours ago Mr Cameron gave a speech to party activists about their unexpected win.
Much of the protest was peaceful, with many attending calling for the introduction of proportional representation after the election results on Friday.’
