Marches against racism and backing freedom of movement for migrants were staged in several cities on Saturday in a Europe-wide day of action.

Around 1,000 people marched to a lively rally in Manchester. Three marches — from the north, south and the gay village area — converged in central Manchester.

Afzal Khan, deputy leader of Manchester city council, and NUJ leader Jeremy Dear spoke at the final rally.

Demonstrations were also held in Nottingham, Bristol and Glasgow and more than 400 people staged a noisy and colourful protest in London.
