London protest LIVE: Mob descends on bus taking migrants to Bibby Stockholm | UK | News

A mob of protesters have descended on a bus meant to be taking migrants to the Bibby Stockholm barge. At least 30 activists have blocked the coach on Old Kent Road, south London, this morning. Police are also at the scene but have been told to ‘stand down’ temporarily, a witness at the scene said. It comes just eight days after protesters stopped a group of asylum seekers from being moved in Peckham, despite a heavy police response. A number of officers were assaulted as the crowd clashed with cops, leading to 45 arrests after scores of people blocked the vehicle on May 2.
