22 Police Officers Injured Trying to Break Up Block Party 

A huge police presence was seen in Brixton overnight, with footage on social media showing people throwing items at officers, after reports that officers had broken up a block party.

Different videos being shared widely on social media this morning show police clad in riot gear retreating as groups of people approach.

Some of the videos show items being thrown at police. According to a local politician police were injured in the incident.

Further footage, though yet to be verified, being shared widely shows a group smashing up a police car with no officers in sight.

Earlier yesterday, Met Police in Lambeth tweeted that a dispersal order had been put in place covering the areas around Lilford Road, Dorra Way and Myatts Field because of a planned unlicensed music event.
