London (CNN)Officials have condemned violent scenes at a protest in Bristol, England that left police officers injured and vehicles ablaze, as tensions mount between law enforcement and activists over a controversial crime bill that could curtail people's ability to demonstrate.

The "Kill the Bill" protest was denounced by the government and local lawmakers after protesters clashed with police, attacking a police station and leaving some officers with broken bones on Sunday evening.

At the top of a fact sheet for the bill on the government's website, Cressida Dick, Metropolitan Police Commissioner, is quoted as saying that ever since the Extinction Rebellion climate change protests in London, police forces have needed "change to powers and to legislation that would enable the police to deal better with protests" that "are not primarily violent or seriously disorderly," but "had an avowed intent to bring policing to its knees and the city to a halt.
