Some demonstrators attending a march for higher salaries in London have detonated smoke bombs.

The English Trades Union Congress (TUC) has organized a march through central London, demanding a new minimum wage of £10 per hour, as well as a money boost for the NHS, education and other public services.

As the union’s General Secretary Frances O’Grady described the rally’s aim: “There is a new mood in the country. People have been very patient but they are now demanding a new deal.”

In Trafalgar Square the protest turned chaotic, with some flag-waving demonstrators firing smoke bombs.
