Pro-Brexit protesters have blocked London’s Westminster Bridge to express support for Brexit, adopting the iconic “Yellow Vests” used by anti-Macron protesters in France.
The Friday rally briefly brought the bridge’s traffic to a standstill as protesters held a British flag and chanted slogans such as “Brexit now!” and “what do we want? Brexit. When do we want it? Now”.
Greater London’s local transport body warned commuters of possible traffic on the bridge.
Buses serving routes via Westminster Bridge Road may be delayed because of a demonstration which is blocking the road.

Being notified of possible arrest by police, the demonstrators further went on to gather outside Downing Street, the official residence and office of the Prime Minister of the UK.
Facing police officers guarding the complex, activists called on them to support their cause against corrupt politicians.
