A 13-year-old girl has been arrested on suspicion of assaulting a police officer at a pro-Brexit 'yellow vest' protest in London today.

Around 100 demonstrators stopped traffic and set off smoke bombs outside Downing Street as they marched through the capital during the protest.

The teenager was one of four detained after protests on Westminster Bridge, near Parliament, at around 11am. Three men were also arrested on suspicion of public order offences, Metropolitan Police confirmed.
