Protestors have clashed with police outside the Iranian embassy.

Online footage showed a line of officers pushing back men armed with long rods.

More than 100 people were seen in the crowds, many waving Iranian flags, outside the building in Princes Gate, south west London.

It comes after more than a week of anti-government demonstrations following the death of Mahsa Amini in police custody, who had been detained for allegedly breaking headscarf rules.
