Anarchists lock police at Oxford Street

There is a large Police line around Top Shop and more police vans arriving any minute.

We’ve just witnessed a scene in which anarchists blocked the path of a police truck forcing officers to leave their vehicle and make their way on foot towards Top Shop, wearing helmets and carrying batons.

There are reports that the Police are planning to kettle the protesters in the area, however this mat be difficult as currently most shops in Oxford Street are open with customers inside.

Reports suggest protesters headed down Great Portland streets away from the area, however this seems unfounded as more are in fact arriving along Oxford Street and seem to e congregating outside of Top Shop
