The group marched through Hyde Park and Oxford Street today calling for the government to end lockdown restrictions despite the soaring number of cases across the city. Some were seen holding banners claiming “lockdown kills”.

Jeremy Corbyn’s brother, Piers, attended the rally despite being fined £10,000 for previously organising a protest.

He was seen shouting into a megaphone with a raised fist.

The protesters called for the end of the mandatory face mask rule and even want to stop coronavirus vaccines.

It came after the capital woke up with tougher restrictions imposed under Boris Johnson’s Tier 2 rules.

Under these measurements, different households have now been banned from going inside pubs and meeting in each other’s homes.

Other areas which are now in the same Tier include Essex, Elmbridge., Barrow-in-Furness, York, North East Derbyshire, Erewash and Chesterfield.

Yesterday Lancashire entered the highest Tier alongside Liverpool meaning people are banned from mixing with other households both indoors and outdoors.

Businesses such as leisure centres and bars have been forced to close again but restaurants and schools can remain open.
