One police officer remains in hospital after being injured in disturbances linked to a party to celebrate the death of Margaret Thatcher in Bristol last night. Chief Inspector Mark Jackson at Avon and Somerset Police said:
Six police officers were injured during disturbances in Bristol to mark the death of Baroness Thatcher.
Police were called to Chelsea Road in Easton at 12.30am after reports of a street party with up to 200 people in attendance.
Six officers were injured - one seriously - after they were pelted with bottles and cans. A police vehicle was also damaged.
One person was arrested.
Extra police were sent to Brixton last night as a crowd of about 150 people celebrated Baroness Thatcher's death late into the evening.
Scotland Yard said the group caused "low level" disorder and threw a small number of objects at officers, but there were no arrests and no serious injuries.

The Ritzy Cinema said it had nothing to do with masked people who climbed the front of the building and changed the film listings tiles to read "Margaret Thatchers dead. Equality is the key".
The group dispersed at about 1.45am, police said.

In Brixton, demonstrators have gathered to 'celebrate' Baroness Thatcher's death and the lettering of the Ritzy Cinema has been rearranged to say "Margret Thatchers dead".
The south London district was the scene of fierce rioting during the Thatcher years blamed on deep social divisions, racial tensions and unemployment.
In the aftermath of the 1981 Brixton riots, the prime minister was criticised for what some saw as a lack of understanding or denial of the causes of the disturbance, after comments such as:
"Nothing, but nothing, justifies what happened.
"Money cannot buy either trust or racial harmony."
As Britain received the news that Baroness Thatcher had died, not everyone was in mourning.
In Brixton, south London - the scene of fierce rioting in the 1980s, blamed on deep social divisions as well as racial tensions - a hastily convened party was gathering pace.
"Thatcher herself, she represents so much of what people hate about what has happened to Britain in the last 20, 30 years," said 40-year-old graphic designer Ben Windsor.
One woman, who gave her name as Claire, said: "That woman made my youth a misery. I think that she was to blame for most of the ills of society. And most of the things that poor people and ill people are now being blamed for were her fault."
Another demonstrator said: "She started the whole neo-liberal madness we're all suffering from now.
"People in Brixton suffered. People in Brixton suffered directly because of her policies."
