    Striking workers riot in Downing Street.

  • Description

    Downing Street, London.

    March of the workers. A deputation of mayors go to No. 10.

    Riots of No. 10 - a row of policemen hold back swelling crowds of men in flat caps. M/S of first aid men and a policeman attending to a man injured in the riot. C/U of another protester having a head injury attended to by a first aider ( possibly a St. John's ambulance volunteer ).

    M/S of the deputation of mayors, all in trilbies, standing on the door step to No. 10.

    C/U of a man with a bandaged head slumped against railings in Downing street, a first aider is attending to him.

    M/S of the 'deputation' walking down Downing Street. C/U of a man in a flat cap having a wound on his arm attended to.

    Note: although there is no intertitle to verify this, these scenes correspond to pictures of striking workers rioting in Whitehall. This month saw road transport workers join the ranks of striking miners - it is possible that the Miner's leader, J.H. Thomas could be amongst the deputation to Downing Street.
