London police charge on horseback at George Floyd protesters, who throw bottles and BICYCLE (VIDEOS)

Fresh footage from London shows protests in support of the Black Lives Matter movement becoming chaotic and dangerous, with police officers on horseback charging at protesters, who take to assaulting the animals.

People are seen running from the officers and throwing bottles, sticks, and even flares at them while the police charge forward.

At one point, a police horse broke loose from the officers, creating a scene of chaos among the protesters.

Separate videos show the horses being assaulted by demonstrators, with one even having a bicycle launched at it.

A perimeter was then set up to keep protesters away from the entrance to Downing Street, where the prime minister’s residence is located.

Things seemed to calm down not long after, as protesters turned to chanting slogans including “Boris Johnson is a racist” and “We are one.”

In Parliament Square, a statue of Winston Churchill was also vandalized with spray paint, sparking outrage over the fact that such a desecration occurred on the 76th anniversary of D-Day.
