Hundreds gathered in Bournemouth today (Tuesday) in solidarity with those in the US protesting over the police killing of unarmed man George Floyd.

Demonstrators met in the town's square and gardens, holding up signs which some read 'Black Lives Matter' and 'Justice for George'.

During their peaceful protest, they took a knee in silence, mirroring some of the gatherings in America.

Protests are also planned to go ahead on Wednesday in Southampton and Oxford.

Southampton Stand Up to Racism says it will be hosting a socially distanced vigil and protest, along with calling for a public inquiry in Britain 'into the disproportionate number of BAME deaths during the Covid-19 crisis.'

Meanwhile demonstrators in Oxford are expected to gather in South Park on Cowley Road as part of a national day of action.
