Reporter on the ground reports from Picadilly

From Rebeccas Jones, QMUL

See Rebecca’s photos here

These were taken about half an hour ago outside of Fortnum and Mason at Piccadilly. The whole of Piccadilly has been transformed into a war zone as protesters clash violently with riot police. Missiles including glass bottles, beer cans and wooden batons were being thrown at officers and into the crowd. Officers have contained the whole of Piccadilly with terrified customers still stuck inside shops and cafes. Only press and police paramedics are allowed in or out of the area. A faction of Protesters have returned back to Oxford Street but reports say the majority are being contained at Piccadilly.
