Two people have been arrested for public order offences and assaulting a police officer following a demonstration in Cardiff city centre.

South Wales Police said a May Day rally organised by the South Wales Anarchists group on Saturday saw protestors enter the HSBC bank on Queen Street.

Officers said the incident caused "distress and concern to staff and customers".

The police said the rest of the protest passed off peacefully.
