More than 1,000 people took part in a march sparked by the Israel-Gaza conflict, according to an organiser.

The pro-Palestinian demonstration saw a crowd walk from Plashet Park to East Ham Town Hall on Tuesday, May 18.

Sabia Kamali, who helped organise the march, said: "It went brilliantly. The turnout was better than expected. Over 1,000."

Before a ceasefire was announced overnight, East Ham MP Stephen Timms and West Ham MP Lyn Brown wrote to Prime Minister Boris Johnson urging the government to ease tensions.

A prayer and speeches were given at a vigil following the march.
