Hundreds of people turned out to protest in Norwich on Sunday in support of the Black Lives Matter movement, amid global outrage over the death of American man George Floyd.

Mr Floyd’s death in Minneapolis was the catalyst for millions of people around the world standing up to highlight the injustices towards black people throughout history and to campaign for change.

Norwich was no different, as hundreds turned out to demonstrate at The Forum on Sunday.

In Eaton Park, a smaller gathering took place for a protest which was streamed online and has been viewed tens of thousands of times.

Unlike some other protests seen elsewhere, both those which took place in Norwich were peaceful and social distancing rules were largely adhered to.
