From Morning Report, 6:46 am on 28 October 2020

Italy has been rocked by widespread protests across the country following the introduction of new Covid-19 restrictions.

While the measures aren't as strict as when the country suffered heavily at the hands of the pandemic six months ago, they have created division.

Protests and some skirmishes broke out in cities across Italy soon after the restrictions were introduced on Sunday.

Hundreds of protestors clashed with police on the streets of northern cities Milan and Turin.
