A poster has been circulating around social media about a planned Black Lives Matter protest set to take place in Leicester this week.
The poster says it is a "peaceful protest against police brutality in the US and the UK". It also calls for masks to be worn and for people to follow social distancing guidelines.
This comes after mass protests have been taking place across the US and parts of the UK after the death of George Floyd who died in police custody.
Derek Chauvin, a police officer, has been charged with his murder in Minneapolis.
Yesterday, thousands of people flooded the streets of London holding up signs saying "Justice for George Floyd" and "Black Lives Matter".
Hundreds of people also attended similar protests in Cardiff and Manchester yesterday. Five people were arrested yesterday in London.

There have been protests in multiple states in the United States, forcing mayors to enforce curfews to prevent possible looting and violence.
Thousands of soldiers and airmen have been put on stand by, as police struggle to contain protests and looting.
A spokesperson from Leicestershire Police said: "We have been made aware of a possible event relating to Black Lives Matter due to take place in Leicester on Saturday.
"Our officers are reaching out to the organisers so that the event can go ahead and we can put an appropriate supportive policing plan in place.
"We continue to have constant dialogue with all of our diverse communities and work with them on issues that matter to them.
As a force, we recognise people’s right to protest. If you are able to leave your home under the current Health Protection Regulations, we’d ask you think carefully about where you’re going and how you will be able to keep your distance from others."
