The Metropolitan Police confirm that more than a 100 people were arrested outside the Olympic Park last night following cycling protests.

The Metropolitan Police have confirmed that more than a 100 people were arrested outside the Olympic Park last night following cycling protests.

Scotland Yard said that protesters were arrested after breaching security cordons around the Olympic Park during the Opening Ceremony.

The cyclists are believed to be part of a 'Critical Mass' cycling club that arrange monthly bike rides, but a police order meant the cyclists were prohibited from travelling into the Olympic Park on Friday night.

There were reports of several scuffles between the police and the cyclists, but Scotland Yard have said that no serious injuries had been reported.
