Thousands join the second Black Lives Matter protest

Thousands of protesters have joined a Black Lives Matter demonstration in Leeds today.

The peaceful rally, organised by Black Lives Matter Leeds, was the second demonstration to be held in the city following a joint protest with Black Voices Matter at Millennium Square last weekend.

Protesters flooded to Woodhouse Moor, Hyde Park, from 1.30pm where a staggered entry system and social distancing measures were in place.

Organisers urged protesters to maintain a two metre distance as a line-up of speakers and poets took to the stage.
