HUMZA Yousaf has called on Suella Braverman to resign after a far right crowd attacked police in London near the Cenotaph.

He tweeted: "The far-right has been emboldened by the Home Secretary. She has spent her week fanning the flames of division.

"They are now attacking the Police on Armistice Day. The Home Secretary's position is untenable. She must resign."

A large crowd of people bearing St George flags was seen walking along Embankment and shouting “England ’til I die” shortly after 10am on Saturday.

Skirmishes broke out as police attempted to stop them from reaching the Cenotaph war memorial but the group pushed through, with some shouting “let’s have them” as officers hit out with batons.

The Met Police posted on X, formerly Twitter: “While the two minutes’ silence was marked respectfully and without incident on Whitehall, officers have faced aggression from counter-protesters who are in the area in significant numbers.”

The force added that it “will use all the powers and tactics available to us to prevent” the counter-protesters from confronting the main march.

Plaid Cymru leader Rhun ap Iorwerth also called for the Home Secretary to resign. He said: "The far-right thuggery on display in London today has been enabled by a reckless Home Secretary more interested in sowing divisions than healing them.

"She is a disgrace to her office and the Prime Minister must show some moral courage by sacking her today."

Braverman remains under pressure from all sides after accusing the police of bias when they resisted pressure to ban the pro-Palestinian march.

After her comments were widely criticised and sparked calls for Sunak to sack her, Braverman on Friday expressed her “full backing” for the Metropolitan Police at a meeting with Commissioner Sir Mark Rowley.
