A protester has died during G20 protests in London, according to the police.

The man was found after collapsing at a protest camp near the Bank of England.

[efoods]Police said bottles were thrown at them while they attempted to treat him.

He was later pronounced dead after being taken by ambulance to a nearby hospital.

The news came as Scotland Yard vowed to track down and prosecute those who attacked officers and stormed a bank during a day of unrest in the City of London.

Riot police had to be sent in after activists broke into a branch of the Royal Bank of Scotland.

A handful of people with black scarves obscuring their faces and hoods over their heads smashed a hole in the windows with a metal pole and crawled in.

Protesters removed equipment, daubed graffiti on the walls, threw a chair through a window and started a small fire.

Police entered the branch at around 2pm and shortly afterwards began driving demonstrators away from the Threadneedle Street branch, which had earlier been closed by RBS.
