Live Covid news for Yorkshire as doctors slam anti-lockdown protests


share close

Doctors have slammed an anti-lockdown protest, saying the sight of people gathering for the event was “shocking” and “disappointing”.

Two police officers were taken to hospital after protesters gathered in Hyde Park and marched down Oxford Street in London on Saturday.

The protest came on the day the government announced more than half of the UK’s population had received their first dose of a Covid-19 vaccine, and with restrictions slowly being lifted.

Dr Ajay Verma, a consultant gastroenterologist and physician working in Northamptonshire, told the PA news agency: “There is a small minority of people who seem to believe there’s a conspiracy going on, which is upsetting, and the worst thing is they’re putting themselves at risk by gathering in a crowd.

“They’re protesting against the measures they’re driving themselves by gathering in a crowd.”

Protesters carried banners with slogans such as “have you been called a conspiracy theorist in 2020? You may be entitled to an apology”, “you don’t need proof to know truth” and “Covid 19 vaccine holocaust”.
