A mayoral candidate for Bristol has voiced his support for black lives matter movement despite concerns that large-scale protests could affect the country's fight against coronavirus.
Charity campaigner and communication specialist Samuel Williams was selected as the Conservative Party's candidate last year.
As people across the world take action in protest at the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis and racial injustice, Mr Williams has said he "stands in unity" with victims of racial injustice.
However, he has also expressed concerns over holding demonstrations against the backdrop of the global Covid-19 pandemic.
