Turks in Leicester urge their Prime Minster to resign
Protesters staged a rally calling for the resignation of the Turkish prime minister.
Recep Tayyip Erdogan has been the subjects of protests and unrest in Turkey for more than 10 days.
What started as a campaign against the building of a shopping centre in an Istanbul park has evolved into a wider call for people power.
Burcu Erdogan, 23, of Beaumont Leys, said she organised the event at Leicester's Clock Tower to show unity with the protesters in her homeland.
She said: "About 30 people came along and we had a really good response from the public.
"We want to show our support for the people in Turkey who are trying to call for freedom in their country."
The protests began in Istanbul and have spread across the country. Four people are reported to have died.
