Hundreds of anti-vaxxers have marched through the streets of London today accompanied by their children as they campaign against the Covid jab.
Pictures from the scene show crowds armed with placards bearing slogans including 'leave our children alone' and 'hands off our children' as they made their way through the capital.
The protestors marched along the banks of the River Thames, past the London Eye before arriving at Downing Street where they chanted 'save our children'.
Videos from the scene showed people throwing colourful plastic balls through the gates of Downing Street and chanting 'Boris is a wet wipe'.

Vaccine's minister Nadhim Zahawi previously said the Government had niggling concerns about the 'very rare' cases of heart inflammation in some young people given the Pfizer and Moderna jabs.
Currently, children in the UK will only get a Covid vaccine if they are over 12 and extremely vulnerable. They may also get the vaccine if they live with someone at risk.
Earlier this month, the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation expanded the eligibility from vulnerable 16 and 17-year-olds, but said a universal vaccination of children would be too risky.Insurance Loans Mortgage Attorney Credit Lawyer
The advisory body said: 'The health benefits in this population are small, and the benefits to the wider population are highly uncertain.
'At this time, JCVI is of the view that the health benefits of universal vaccination in children and young people below the age of 18 years do not outweigh the potential risks.'
The Pfizer vaccine has been authorised for people aged 12 years and over in the UK by the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency.
