Eventful night in The UK Activists attack police station in Bristol

A demonstration in Bristol against a bill giving police more powers to intervene in protests in the UK has turned violent.

Hundreds of anti-bill protesters gathered in central Bristol to march to Bridewell Police Station.

Police intervened when they arrived at the police station to demand the bill be withdrawn.

Resisting police, the activists stoned the police station’s windows and responded with fireworks.

Demonstrators also set fire to two separate police vans in front of the police station and in a nearby park.

Avon and Somerset Police Federation president Andy Roebuck said a policeman suffered broken arms and ribs during the incidents.

John Apter, president of the Police Federation of England and Wales, described the incidents as “horrific,” adding: “Some police officers were badly injured, police vehicles were damaged, a police station was attacked.”

If the controversial bill becomes law, police will be able to set start and end times for protests.

A certain level of noise can be determined and the show can be interfered with if the noise reaches the point where it will disrupt the work or transportation of an institution or have a serious impact on the surroundings.

Those who break the law could face up to 10 years in prison or a fine.
