It came as hundreds of activists gathered in the capital holding placards reading "racism has no place" and "no justice, no peace".

Mr Floyd died after a Minneapolis police officer was filmed kneeling on his neck in a now infamous video.

Protests have occurred in a number of US cities as activists clashed with police - with the demos now spreading to the UK.
