Anti-lockdown protesters calling coronavirus a 'hoax' gather in London

Hundreds of coronavirus deniers have gathered in London’s Trafalgar Square to protest against lockdowns and vaccination programmes.

The ‘Unite for Freedom’ rally started at noon and calls for an ‘end to Government lies’ and the restoration of all freedoms.

Early images from the demonstration show a sizeable crowd gathered in the square, holding signs warning that coronavirus is a ‘scam’ and a ‘hoax.’

One person held a homemade placard on which he had scrawled ‘no to mandatory vaccines.’

Another said the virus, which has killed more than 40,000 people in the UK, was ‘fake science’ and comparable to a ‘bad flu.’

A flyer for the event said the protestors would be joined by ‘top professional doctors and nurses speaking out’. Jeremy Corbyn’s brother, Piers, is also due to make an appearance.

It comes as countries around the world continue to battle with thousands of new infections and deaths a day.
