Yellow Vests face Yellow Vests: Fights erupt between anti-Brexit and pro-Brexit supporters

CLASHES between pro-Brexit Yellow Vest protestors and anti-Brexit protestors has erupted at Trafalgar Square, with reports of both sides calling each other ‘Nazis’.

There have been reports of fights between anti-Brexit supporters and pro-Brexit supporters on social media as both ends of the political spectrum attend the Britain is Broken march at Trafalgar Square this afternoon. Hope Not Hate, the anti-racism organisation wrote on Twitter: “Looks like there’s been at least one arrest after a group of far right protesters broke away from the main group and tried to confront leftwing protestors in Trafalgar Square. The police intervened to stop them and the far right got physical.”

Eyewitness Ed Crawford, a photojournalist, has told The Express: "Both sides met at Trafalgar Square and there were several fights that broke out between UK antifa.

"Multiple people arrested and both sides screaming Nazi at each other.

"Owen Jones was questioned by A pro Brexit campaigner Danny Tommo and things got heated with him being escorted away.

"He claimed the pro Brexit protester was being rude and other pro Brexit protesters were spitting at him.

"A huge entourage of left wing activists escorted him away and loads of people were chasing after him.

"Ultimately both sides had individuals intent on having a fight and both calling each other nazis."

One person wrote on Twitter: "#Fascists roaming #trafalgarSquare trying start trouble.

Another wrote: "A few fights kicking off at Trafalgar Square between the pro Brexit #yellowvestsUK and anti Brexit protesters.
