George Floyd protests LIVE: Black Lives Matter demo sees thousands descend on London as Chauvin faces 40 YEARS in prison

THOUSANDS of Brits have descended on London's Hyde Park today as worldwide outrage continues to flare over the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis.

Activists started arriving at around 10am with chants heard of "no justice, no peace".

People across the UK have also "took the knee" on their doorsteps in solidarity tonight.

This comes as demonstrators defied curfews in the US.

In New York City, police officers trying to wind down a day of peaceful protests allegedly arrested at least 40 people for breaking a 7pm curfew as looting broke out around Manhattan.

In LA, protesters staged a post-curfew sit-in outside Mayor Eric Garcetti's home.

They held up their hands and chanted "peaceful protest" while ignoring the police's orders to move.

And in Atlanta, tensions increased between protesters and police just before the 9pm curfew as officers launched tear gas into crowds.
