The protest nobody covered

Why is the bbc or any of the major news outlets not saying anything about the major anti-tory protests up in Manchester yesterday? Tens of thousands of people were marching against both Brexit and the tories, yet you hardly hear a word about it down here. Of course, one glimpse at social media tells you it was huge: many of my northern friends were involved, and some of the stories and details I've come across are really rather alarming. Vast crowds kettled by the police as the tories try to keep up the pretence that the country does not loathe them; people being arrested in their droves despite protesting peacefully. As far as I'm concerned that protest represented the british public as a whole, appalled at the tory party currently at it's draconian worst, and at Brexit being forced upon us essentially against our will. If the beeb et al. is truly committed to showing us what is really going on in this country, why didn't they cover this protest?
