Gathering on the same overpass above the Blackwall Tunnel, around a dozen protesters dropped banners declaring: “Refugees are welcome,” as supporters tooted their horns in the traffic below.

The protest was held to oppose the actions of far-right activists on Tuesday who displayed banners reading: “Exit the 1951 UN refugee convention,” and “It’s all right to defend white nations,” alongside Union Jacks and St George’s flags from the flyover last Tuesday.

Among the group are known members of the far-right National Housing Party UK.
