Demonstrators have set fire to a police station in Minneapolis on the third day of violent protests over the death of a black man who was pinned down by police.

Staff at the third precinct, the focus of many of the protests, were forced to evacuate as crowds forced their way into the building on Thursday night.

Rioting spread across the US city following the death of George Floyd, whose neck was kneeled on for almost eight minutes during his arrest on Monday.

In footage of Mr Floyd’s arrest recorded by a bystander, he could be heard pleading that he could not breathe until he slowly stopped talking and moving.
