Boris Johnson - Mayor of London - announced he will endorse the use of water cannons by the Metropolitan Police. Many civil liberties campaigners as well as some Assembly members of Johnson's party are strongly opposing the measure, even if the Mayor stated it will be used in “limited circumstances of extreme public disorder”. “No one wants to see a water cannon deployed routinely on the streets of London," he said.
Rebecca Newsom, of the group ‘No to water cannon’, said the Mayor ignores that water cannons are real weapons. “What proponents of water cannon fail to make clear is that this weapon presents a clear danger to the public”.
