‘This is a disgrace’: Motorists’ fury as Insulate Britain block M25 during rush hour


share close

Motorists have reacted with fury after Insulate Britain protesters blocked the M25 during rush hour – as climate activists also halt traffic at a key London roundabout.

Demonstrators are holding a protest at Junction 25 of the M25 at Waltham Cross, Hertfordshire, causing long queues.

One woman caught up in the tailback told demonstrators they were “a disgrace, an absolute disgrace”.

“My daughter is late to school,” she said. “You are messing with childrens’ education because you are selfish”.

Insulate Britain protesters have also blocked the A501 at Old Street roundabout in Islington, north London, this morning

The Metropolitan Police is responding to both demonstrations.

The force said: “We know that some activists have used super glue to frustrate our efforts and to delay Londoners even further.

“We train for these scenarios and have specialist teams on hand to help remove people and make arrests. We will share more information shortly.”

Insulate Britain says about 40 of its demonstrators are involved in the protests in London and Hertfordshire.

The group admits its actions on the M25 are “in breach” of an injunction obtained by the government last month.
