Andy Marsh, Avon and Somerset chief constable, condemned ‘disgraceful scenes’ at a protest in Bristol that left at least 20 officers injured. ‘I don’t believe this was a protest,’ Marsh said. ‘This was people intent on causing serious disorder, violence and damage, people with a grudge against policing.’ Seven people have been arrested so far after the ‘kill the bill’ demonstration in Bristol, which included protesters stoning a police station and setting fire to police vehicles.
