Tens of thousands took to the streets of UK towns and cities on Saturday to defy reelected PM David Cameron's plans to continue with austerity policies.

In London alone, between 70 000 and 150 000 people are estimated to have attended the main rally, according to The Guardian.

Protesters demanded equality and more commitment to helping the poor.

The Bank of England and the Houses of Parliament were among the main venues where participants gathered in the capital.

Northern Ireland's Deputy First Minister Martin McGuinness was also part of the demonstration.

The organizers from the People's Assembly Against Austerity said results of their effors went beyond their expectations.

Foreign guests, including a member of Greek far-left SYRIZA party, had arrived for the event.
