One officer appears to fall from horse at high speed as demonstrators shout that a protester was knocked aside
Mounted police have charged into Black Lives Matter protesters in London amid ‘panic’ among demonstrators after police used force to push the protest away from Parliament and Downing Street.
One officer, riding at high speed along a crowded street, can be seen falling from her horse and crashing to the ground after what appears to be a collision with a traffic light and a man appears to be knocked aside by a horse to howls from shocked protesters :
LBC correspondent Rachael Venables reported on the ‘panic’ created by the charge:
The SKWAWKBOX understands that a woman police officer was injured in the fall but that her injuries are not life-threatening. Right-wing media have already attempted to blame the officer’s fall on protesters.
The condition of the protester knocked to the ground during the charge is not known.
