Two major roads were blocked in the protest in Sheffield city centre, with sit-in protests and chanting

Hundreds of people marched through Sheffield city centre and blocked two major roads in a Kill The Bill protest on Saturday.

Crowds gathered at Devonshire Green in the city to protest the Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill.

Campaigners say it will give police greater powers to restrict protests, including impositions on start times and even the level of noise made by protestors.

Hundreds gathered at 1pm to hear speeches in Devonshire Green before crowds converged to march through Sheffield city centre shoulder to shoulder with one another.

Pinstone Street and Snig Hill were both brought to a standstill when protesters sat down in the middle of the road as part of their demonstration.

A small vigil was also held for George Floyd.

People could be heard chanting “Kill The Bill” and “This is what democracy looks like”.
