Thousands poured onto the streets of Berlin, Istanbul, Madrid, Paris and Turin for International Workers' Day.

Officers were seen tackling protesters to the ground in Turkey, holding people around their faces and pulling their hair, as they made dozens of arrests as the country remains under full lockdown measures.

In Turin, hundreds scrummed with riot police as red flags bearing the hammer and sickle buffeted in the wind.

Meanwhile, the Russian Communist Party held a more subdued commemoration for Karl Marx in Moscow where the authorities still revere the Soviet Union, despite its atrocities and failings.
