According to the Scotland Yard, 13 arrests were for public order offences, six for being drunk and disorderly, four for assault on police, three for assault, two related to class A drugs and one each for breaching a dispersal order and breaching a banning order.

Some supporters also expressed their disappointments, as mass gatherings should be avoided and many did not practice social distancing amidst the pandemic, as reported by Independent.
