A woman has been filmed appearing to urinate and defecate at the feet of police officers during a violent protest in Bristol.
Shocking pictures and videos shown a police van ablaze on the streets, with reports also claiming people have reached the roof of Bridewell Police Station in city centre.
In a video posted on Twitter, two women walk out from the protest group during a tense stand-off with the police and start pulling off their trousers.
They squat down at the feet of the officers by their riot shields and apparently start urinating and defecating in public.
One of the women can be seen filming themselves while the protesters cheer and clap their hands, shouting: "Yeah! F*** you!"
Retired police officer Norman Brennan wrote: "This disgusting woman squats down & urinates against a Public Order Officers shield to the amusement of the crowd.
"I’d love to meet her parents with this clip of video. This behaviour absolutely beggars belief!"
Bristol mayor Marvin Rees said the actions of the rioters was "pathetic" and "politically illiterate".
He told TalkRADIO presenter Julia Hartley Brewer: "It’s pathetic, well it’s worse than pathetic. It’s also politically illiterate.
"We’re doing the real job in this city of trying to tackle inequality, feed our children, work on domestic violence, mental health.
"What they did last night has nothing to do with the needs of people in this city or in this country.
"It’s just selfish, self indulgent and self-centred behaviour that’s all about them living out their fantasy of being revolutionaries."
The event was dubbed "Kill the Bill", in reference to the attempts to stop the Government's proposed law which would give police and the Home Secretary increased powers to stop protests.
The Bill also makes a special new law to protect monuments and statues, in the wake of the toppling of the statue of Edward Colston, with the crime of damaging them punishable by up to ten years in prison.
