According to British Health Secretary Matt Hancock, most of England will face harsh coronavirus restrictions in a new three-tier system when the lockdown ends next week, with London being listed in Tier Two.

Police in London said on Saturday that they had made over 60 arrests and expected that figure to rise, as they tried to break up anti-lockdown and anti-vaccine protests.

Grassroots activist group Save Our Rights UK had planned a series of demonstrations to take place across the weekend in London to protest against the second national lockdown.

"We continue to urge people to go home", the force added.

The force said: "These were for a number of different offences, including breaching coronavirus restrictions".

Anti-lockdown protests have been repeatedly held in the United Kingdom since the start of the coronavirus pandemic.

Earlier, London police said that there had been over 60 arrests at the Saturday demonstration.

A police officer takes away a protester during an anti-lockdown protest against government restrictions created to control or mitigate the spread of coronavirus, including the wearing of masks and lockdowns, on Regents Street in London on November 28, 2020.

Hundreds of demonstrators marched through the city near Oxford Street chanting "freedom" on Saturday, with some carrying placards reading "Stop Controlling Us" and "No More Lockdowns", Sky News said. "If not, you may face arrest or enforcement action". "We've seen our police officers yet again do incredible work to ensure that they help to stop the spread of this very bad virus", she said. We ask everybody to be conscientious, we all know the regulations and the guidance.

A protest is not a permitted exemption to the prohibition on gatherings under current coronavirus regulations in England and those who attend risk enforcement action by officers, the Met said.
