Protest at the Iranian embassy

A policing operation has been in place for ongoing demonstrations in the vicinity of the Iranian Embassy in Princes Gate, SW7.

During the afternoon of Sunday, 25 September a large number of protesters gathered at the location, with a substantial group intent on causing disorder.

Further police resources were brought in to support those on the ground after protesters attempted to breach police lines and had thrown missiles at officers.

Five arrests have been made for offences including violent disorder.

We are aware of a number of police officers who received injuries while dealing with the disorder; none of those are thought to be seriously hurt.

A significant policing presence will remain in and around the area to monitor the situation.
