Home Secretary Suella Braverman has been accused of causing disorder in London with her controversial remarks regarding pro-Palestine protests.

The Mayor of London Sadiq Khan and Scottish First Minister Humza Yousaf were among those criticising the minister.

The First Minister said Braverman "emboldened" the far right after so-called 'counter-protesters' clashed with police while making their way to the Cenotaph in Central London.

Suella Braverman told 'resign' after 'emboldening' the far right 

In a tweet, he said: “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.”

Sadiq Khan was similarly scathing in his criticism of Suella Braverman, tweeting: “The scenes of disorder we witnessed by the far-right at the Cenotaph are a direct result of the Home Secretary’s words. The police’s job has been made much harder.

“The Met have my full support to take action against anyone found spreading hate and breaking the law.”

The Home Secretary previously attacked the decision by the Met Police to allow a pro-Palestine march to go ahead on Remembrance Day.

When Met Commissioner Sir Mark Rowley resisted pressure from senior Tories to ban the demonstration in the capital, Braverman accused the force of 'bias'.

She also referred to the protest, which is calling for a ceasefire in Israel's operations in the Gaza Strip, as a "hate march".

The right-wing protesters were reported to be chanting "England 'til I die" as they broke through police lines to 'defend the Cenotaph'.

This came after Stephen Yaxley-Lennon, the former co-leader of the English Defence League called on his supporters to mass around the capital.

However, police were able to detain a "large" group of these 'counter-protesters'.

The Met tweeted: "We are reviewing footage & identifying those involved in earlier disorder within the group detained on Bridge Street.

"Those identified will be arrested & we will continue to use our powers under S60 & S60AA of the Public Order Act, to search for weapons & remove face coverings."

Speaking of the ongoing pro-Palestine protest, the Met added: "There have been no incidents related to this protest so far."
