Policemen & two others stabbed during Hyde Park water fight as youths chant ‘Black Lives Matter’

Two police officers and two civilians were rushed to hospital on Tuesday night after clashes broke out as the police tried to quell a huge water fight started by a mob chanting “Black Lives Matter” at Hyde Park, London.

One of the officers was stabbed while another officer was hit by a bottle during the trouble in clashes later described by witnesses as ''resembling a war zone”.
About 1000 youngsters had gathered at Hyde park’s Serpentine lake yesterday and when a water fight broke out around 9pm. Cops tried to disperse the crowd but they turned on the officers.
Many of the crowd were heard chanting “Black Lives Matter” – a slogan coined in the wake of police shootings of black youths in America.
Witness Timi Marcel tweeted: “Hyde Park is a bit of a war zone.”
Another terrified witness wrote on Facebook: “I can’t believe what I witnessed in Marble Arch whilst passing by on the bus.
