More than 100 arrests at London climate protest

Marble Arch, London

Attention-seeking troublemakers, with no jobs of their own to go to, amuse themselves by harassing other people trying to get to work.

Extinction Rebellion campaigners enter their second day of blocking traffic in central London, reports BBC News.

More than 100 climate change activists have been arrested after blocking roads in central London.

Extinction Rebellion campaigners were ordered by the Met to confine their protest to Marble Arch after causing widespread disruption on Monday.

But activists camped overnight to ensure blockades continued at Waterloo Bridge, Millbank and Oxford Circus.

Among a total of 113 arrests, five people were detained on suspicion of criminal damage at Shell’s HQ.

Transport for London warned bus users that routes would “remain on diversion / curtailment in central London due to on-going protest which are blocking roads”.

The majority of others arrested were detained on suspicion of public order offences.
