Tens of thousands of people have taken part in a rally for Gaza in London.

The demonstration came amid renewed violence between Israel and Palestinian militants after a three-day ceasefire ended on Friday.

Organised by the Stop the War coalition and the Palestine Solidarity Campaign, it saw participants march past the US embassy on their way to a rally in Hyde Park.

Speakers included Labour MP Diane Abbott, who told the crowd British people "stand in solidarity with the people of Gaza".

Jon Brain reports.
