Insulate Britain has announced it will “suspend its campaign of civil resistance” until 25 October, in an open letter written to Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

The campaign group has been causing chaos by blocking major roads around London on several occasions.

Police have made multiple arrests during the demonstrations, with angry motorists often clashing with protesters.

“Insulate Britain would like to take this opportunity to profoundly acknowledge the disruption caused over the past five weeks,” the environmental group said in an open letter penned to Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

“Ahead of COP26, Insulate Britain will suspend its campaign of civil resistance until Monday 25th October.”

It comes after the group returned to an M25 junction to protest on Wednesday despite several injunctions granted in recent weeks against protesters blocking sections of the motorway as well as other major transport routes.

The injunctions mean anyone breaching the order could face a prison sentence, Transport Secretary Grant Shapps has said.
