Four people have been injured and one person has been arrested following a clash between pro-Iran supporters and anti-Iranian government protesters in north-west London.

The Metropolitan Police said officers were called to Alperton Lane, Wembley, at 18:21 BST on Friday following reports of disorder.

An event was taking place to mark the death of the president of Iran Ebrahim Raisi who died in a helicopter crash on Sunday along with the country’s foreign minister and six others.

Police said clashes broke out between the groups outside the venue and as a result officers attended alongside London Ambulance Service (LAS) paramedics.

A spokesperson for the Metropolitan Police confirmed four people were hurt and treated for non life-threatening injuries.

"One person was also arrested on suspicion of violent disorder," the spokesperson added.

A dispersal order has been issued by the force - requiring those involved to leave the area.

It will remain in force until 03:00 on Saturday morning, the Met added.
