Met police chief pledges to arrest protesters using swastikas at Gaza protests

Met Commissioner Sir Mark Rowley has warned anyone displaying a swastika at a Palestine protest will be arrested.

Sir Mark issued the warning when he appeared on LBC on Wednesday (1 May) and stated: “Displaying a swastika is an offence and you are going to be arrested”.

The police boss however told presenter Nick Ferrari that protesters “would probably not” be arrested at a Ukraine protest for comparing Vladimir Putin’s Russian regime to Nazi Germany.

Sir Mark said officers have to take situations into context when attending various protests.
