Local reports claim twice as many police officers accompanied protesters in Sao Paolo on a march on Thursday as they took a stand against Brazil’s hosting of the football World Cup in less than three months.

It is one of a number of peaceful demonstrations where activists have expressed their anger at the cost of the tournament.

Protesters believe the money should instead be spent on education, healthcare, transport and tackling crime.
