Several arrested following Extinction Rebellion protests in London

Several arrests were made today following Extinction Rebellion protests in London.

This follows two weeks of protests outside the UK parliament in London.

Demonstrators blocked roads which brought traffic to a standstill, as well as chanting and making a range of speeches.

Campaigners were demanding that the government takes the climate crisis seriously.

At least 10 had to be carried away by police as they refused to move from the roads around Parliament Square.

Metropolitan Police confirmed that 65 people had been arrested on suspicion of public order offenses.
