London arrests reach 50, tension grows

Tension was reported to be building among London demonstrators as police arrested at least 50 people in separate incidents, and moved to dismantle tents at Trafalgar Square.

Police threatened to arrest those ‘OccupyLSX’ protesters who were setting up tents at Trafalgar Square, and ordered them to join the marchers immediately.

Police forces began changing into full riot gear, helmets on hats and shoved into jackets and formed lines on Fleet Street to prevent demonstrators making their way towards St. Paul’s Cathedral.

They also halted marching at Fetter Lane, and with helicopters overhead, forces showed signs of preparing to ‘kettle’ large number of protesters as tension was mounting among the massive crowds.
