At least 44 people have been arrested following renewed protests over poor living conditions in Botrivier in the Western Cape.

Residents blocked roads into the town with burning tree trunks and tyres yesterday.

They then tried to set the local municipal building alight but the fire was extinguished by neighbours before it could spread.

Police say those arrested are due to appear in court on charges of public violence and damage to property.
