People have gathered at locations in Dublin for socially-distanced demonstrations in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement.

The death of George Floyd after being held down by a police officer in Minneapolis on Monday has led to widespread demonstrations across the United States and beyond.

From about 1pm, people began to gather outside the American Embassy in Ballsbridge as well as the American Ambassadors residence in the Phoenix Park.

Another demonstration is due to take place on O'Connell Street tomorrow. On Friday, police officer Derek Chauvin was arrested and charged with third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter for Floyd's death.
