Chauvin, 45, was convicted of second-degree unintentional murder, third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter on Tuesday for pinning George Floyd to the pavement with his knee on the black man's neck for more than nine minutes.

Abingdon Black Lives Matter said in a statement on Tuesday evening: "His killing sparked widespread protests across the world, including over the UK.

"We know it is not true justice, and neither is the compensation to his family a replacement for his life.

"This is at least a victory in our struggle for a just world but the fight is not over and we cannot be complacent."
