Thousands of factory workers have taken to the streets in the Belarus capital Minsk once again – amid increasing international concerns over the disputed presidential election. Despite a brutal crackdown against opponents, protests have continued since the poll a week ago.

Today, President Lukashenko angrily confronted the crowd at a rally as he was heckled by workers at one factory. He told the crowd he would never cave in to pressure.

From self-imposed exile in Lithuania, the main opposition leader Svetlana Tikhanovskaya said she was ready to step in as the new interim leader.

Channel 4 News has been given access to exclusive footage from the heart of the Belarus opposition election campaign as the story unfolds.
