WATCH: Climate protesters dragged from road by motorists in UK

Video footage is circulating on social media showing furious motorists dragging Insulate Britain activists off a busy road located in London.

The campaign group has been causing major traffic delays and congestion by blocking major roads around London which often results in clashes with motorists.

The group has announced that it will be suspending “its campaign of civil resistance” until the 25th of October, according to UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

During the protests, several campaigners have been arrested with several injunctions against them being granted by the High Court.

This means that anyone breaching the order by blocking roads could face a prison sentence, according to Transport Secretary Grant Shapps.
