Hundreds of Grenfell Tower protesters have staged an impromptu march on Whitehall, angry with the response from the Government following Wednesday's disaster.

The group brought the heart of London to a standstill as they tried to march from the Home Office headquarters to Downing Street.

The crowd, shouting "May must go", "justice for Grenfell" and "blood on your hands", were met with a cordon of police officers as they marched up Horseguards Parade, coming to a stop outside the entrance to Downing Street.

Organisers estimated at least 1,400 were involved, with many waving placards.
