So tens of thousands of women - and a number of men including

:00:09.:00:15.

the Mayor of London Sadiq Khan - have taken part in an anti-Trump

:00:16.:00:19.

It was to specifically express fears over women's rights being eroded

:00:20.:00:22.

And also among the marchers, were relatives of one

:00:23.:00:28.

of the original suffragettes - who campaigned for women's votes

:00:29.:00:31.

Protesters gathered at the American Embassy

:00:32.:00:41.

in Grosvenpor Square with a single message about defending

:00:42.:00:43.

For Cathy Marsh from Essex there was a real fear that

:00:44.:00:48.

sacrifices made by her family in the suffragette movement could be

:00:49.:00:51.

I wanted to come here in memory of my great aunt who stood shoulder

:00:52.:00:58.

to shoulder with her dear Mrs Pankhurst.

:00:59.:01:03.

I wanted to come here to show my son, my young son,

:01:04.:01:06.

that it is important to stand up for what you believe

:01:07.:01:09.

in and I came here for myself, because there is nothing

:01:10.:01:14.

so empowering as been surrounded by thousands of others

:01:15.:01:16.

At the beginning of the 20th century, marches by women

:01:17.:01:22.

through the streets of London were commonplace in

:01:23.:01:24.

Cathy's mum says she has experienced that kind

:01:25.:01:29.

When I was a young woman, there was a lot of discrimination

:01:30.:01:36.

still against women, it was difficult to get a job

:01:37.:01:39.

People asked about childcare, you could not get a mortgage

:01:40.:01:45.

without the signature of a man and all the rest.

:01:46.:01:48.

I feel like people like Trump want that the clock turned back.

:01:49.:01:52.

The march to Trafalgar was peaceful and friendly.

:01:53.:01:54.

Women of all ages were there and men, too.

:01:55.:02:04.

We wanted to support the women who came here.

:02:05.:02:07.

Trump made so many appalling comments about so many minority

:02:08.:02:10.

groups, the disabled, LGBT, we wanted to come

:02:11.:02:12.

On the first full day of Donald Trump's Presidency,

:02:13.:02:18.

no one knows whether his policy will affect women's rights,

:02:19.:02:21.

but these protesters wanted to make their views known

:02:22.:02:23.

from the start, a message from the streets of the capital

:02:24.:02:26.

Police officers were punched and had cigarettes poked in their faces -

:02:27.:02:35.

as they tried to stop an 'illegal' rave in south-east

:02:36.:02:38.

London last night. They were called to Deptford High

:02:39.:02:40.

Street after people were spotted entering a disused bank.

:02:41.:02:44.

Five officers were injured, with some taken to not

:02:45.:02:47.

A couple from Surrey, have met the call handler -

:02:48.:02:54.

who just a few weeks ago talked them through delivering their baby -

:02:55.:02:57.

They couldn't get to the hospital in time, so Simon Williams -

:02:58.:03:02.

who was answering the phone for the emergency services

:03:03.:03:04.

hundreds of miles away - found himself having to tell

:03:05.:03:07.

Hello. He has come with a present but Simon has already helped this

:03:08.:03:25.

family from Surrey deliver the greatest gift of all over the phone.

:03:26.:03:29.

He said that the baby was coming. That was it. You think that. The

:03:30.:03:39.

baby was coming out. You are through to the NHS 111 service. When Simon

:03:40.:03:43.

picked up the call in Newcastle he quickly realised things were not

:03:44.:03:47.

quite right. The question he answered yes to which hurried things

:03:48.:03:54.

up, it was that the waters were stained, it means the baby was

:03:55.:03:58.

stressed. Simon said an ambulance and a taxi was called. The car

:03:59.:04:01.

arrived first and were more signs that their baby would not wait. He

:04:02.:04:06.

was standing there and saying, are you guys coming with us? What was on

:04:07.:04:14.

your dress? There was blood and everything on my shirt, because the

:04:15.:04:18.

baby came with the pressure, the blood was all around. I told the

:04:19.:04:24.

taxi to go now. In the end, the baby was born under the stairs of the

:04:25.:04:31.

family home. She is alive and she is healthy. That is your hard work.

:04:32.:04:36.

Daniel Henry, BBC London News. Congratulations to the family and

:04:37.:04:37.

credit to Simon as well. The weather, and after a sunny

:04:38.:04:39.

but cold day, there'll be more widespread frost tonight -

:04:40.:04:42.

with some possible fog patches. Tomorrow, London will be

:04:43.:04:44.

glistening, but chilly. There's more on our Facebook,

:04:45.:04:47.

Twitter and website. Good evening. It does not get

:04:48.:05:15.

warmer. If you check the UK as a whole, it has been one of the

:05:16.:05:18.

coldest days so far. The hard frost to come in areas where it stays

:05:19.:05:24.

clear, parts of East Anglia, the south-east, fog across Scotland, at

:05:25.:05:28.

West, a change, showers and parts of Wales and England, some snow on high

:05:29.:05:32.

ground as well. Meanwhile, down under through the early hours, Andy

:05:33.:05:38.

Murray will be getting ready for his next match in the Australian

:05:39.:05:49.
