Met Police intend to provide you with regular updates regarding Brexit and policing throughout the coming weeks as the set Brexit date draws nearer. Activity is typically focused in and around Parliament Square, but recent protests have been spontaneous and roving.
Daily Pro and Anti Brexit campaign groups, plan to continue their activity each day in the vicinity of Old Palace Yard, SW1. At times, spontaneous and rapidly organised demonstrations may occur.
In the wider landscape of current day protests, Yellow Vest Groups intend taking action on Saturday 2 February. Recent protests by these groups have been disorganised but disruptive. The intention on Saturday may be to utilise motorcycles in order to rapidly relocate and expand their disruptive capabilities potentially targeting roads and service stations.
Protest activity on 29 January did not result in any substantial disorder. Ukip / Yellow Vest Groups / Football risk supporters / Pro and Anti Brexit briefly blocked the road next to Old Place Yard / College Green. There was a high number of complaints from both Pro and Anti Brexit Groups and this tension could persist.
