Residents of the Los Angeles informal settlement near Mfuleni in Cape Town, have staged a service delivery protest, demanding basic services like water and electricity.

The protest forced police to block off the Old Faure Road.

The group of disgruntled residents have dispersed, leaving behind the remnants of their protest.

It’s believed the residents of the informal settlement were protesting over service delivery.

Police on the scene hovered over the burning tyres and rubble left in the middle of the road.

Residents broke down an outside toilet and threw pieces of concrete slab into the road.

Police have not arrested anyone yet but will stay on the scene in case residents decide to protest again.
