Trouble continued to flare late into the night as hundreds of people attempted to hijack today’s massive anti government cuts demonstration in central London.

Riot police fought activists in Trafalgar Square as violent protesters threatened to overshadow the TUC rally in Hyde Park which had earlier passed off peacefully.

A Metropolitan Police spokesman said between 200 and 300 people had gathered at the landmark location late this evening.

He said: ‘A large number from the crowd are throwing missiles and have attempted to damage the Olympic clock within the square.
‘Officers have come under sustained attack as they deal with the disorder and attempted criminal damage.’

In stark contrast, the daytime demonstration was hailed a ‘fantastic success’ by trade unions as people from across the UK marched through central London.

Organisers estimated between 400,000 and 500,000 teachers, nurses, firefighters, council and NHS workers, other public sector employees, students, pensioners and campaign groups converged on the capital.
