The Met policed a number of events in London today and made 15 arrests [as at 17:00hrs].

During a pro-Palestine protest and counter protests in Westminster on Saturday, 13 April the Met arrested nine people for public order offences.

Six people were arrested for a variety of offences at football matches.

All 15 were taken to police stations where they remain at this time.
