THREE men have been arrested over “racially motivated” clashes with a pro-Palestinian group who were holding a sit-in at London’s Waterloo station.
A video went viral showing four-letter insults being hurled on Saturday.

Police visited Kevin Sweeney, 61, at his home in West Molesey, Surrey, yesterday and were also seen at the home of Arsenal fan James Thomas, 33, in Christchurch, Dorset.
Police confirmed that two men, aged 61 and 33, and a 57-year-old man from Surbiton, south west London, were in custody.
A fourth man is wanted.
Meanwhile, a woman who waved a placard depicting a swastika in the Star of David at a rally in London on Saturday was named as Kate Varnfield, 66 – a former Labor Party activist in Eastbourne, East Sussex.
The 66-year-old, who once accused party leaders of behaving like the Third Reich, joined the Eastbourne Constituency Labor Party when Jeremy Corbyn became leader in 2015.
Her husband Terry, 73, bizarrely denied the sign was anti-Semitic – claiming the symbol meant “peace and love”.
He said it came from Raelism, a “UFO religion” that claims an alien species created humanity.
