Protesters Target Byron
 

Demonstrators gathered outside a Byron Hamburgers branch in central London on Monday night to protest against an immigration sting that resulted in the deportation of at least 25 people.

The Holborn branch of the popular upmarket burger chain closed on Monday afternoon, before the protest, with a sheet of A4 paper taped to the door. “Sorry, we are temporarily closed because of a technical issue. Apologies for the inconvenience,” it stated, with no mention of the protest.

About 200 people gathered outside the restaurant – a smaller number than organisers had hoped for – amid a significant police presence, with part of the road closed to traffic. The Metropolitan police said earlier it was aware of the plans and had “an appropriate policing plan in place”.
