Violent protests in England's Bristol 'unacceptable', PM Johnson says

LONDON (Reuters) - Violence in the southwest English city of Bristol that followed a protest against new policing laws on Sunday was "unacceptable", Prime Minister Boris Johnson said on Monday.

"I think that all that kind of thing is unacceptable and I think that the people obviously have a right to protest in this country, but they should protest peacefully and legally," he said.

Two police officers were seriously injured in the violence.
