Riot police are pelted with bottles at park close to London Eye

Riot police were deployed to a London park as people hurled bottles at officers after another sweltering day in the capital.

A vast crowd of police wearing riot gear and clutching shields were seen making their way along South Bank – a stone’s throw away from the London Eye.

And in nearby Jubilee Gardens – a popular spot for day drinkers on sunny weekends – the officers shouted as they cleared the area of picnickers.

Amazed onlookers could do nothing but watch the scenes unfold – with many filming the action on their phones.

A Met Police spokesperson said a large group ‘began throwing items’ towards officers shortly after 9pm on Saturday.
