Four officers were injured during chaos unfolding in central London, the Metropolitan Police has said.
The force said a number of protesters had “become violent” towards police during action in the capital. In a tweet, Scotland Yard said: “A number of protesters have become violent towards police. Four of our officers have been injured during clashes.
“This is unacceptable. We remain on scene. Updates to follow.”
Security guards were seen holding the revolving doors shut as protesters dressed in black tried to charge at the glass. The Metropolitan Police, who were nearby after an Extinction Rebellion protest, managed to swoop in and block the entrance to keep the crowd at bay before they were dispersed back to Canary Wharf.
