Extinction Rebellion and Just Stop Oil eco-activists are arrested

At least 34 climate change protesters have been arrested over the blocking of oil terminals across the country – as the activist groups warned they would become ‘more disruptive than ever’ from next week.

Protestors from Just Stop Oil and Extinction Rebellion obstructed 10 fuel sites in the Midlands and southern England in the early hours of yesterday morning, to stand against ‘expanding UK oil and gas production’.

Protesters were glued on to roads, suspended on bamboo tripods, and locked on to oil drums and each other from around 4am.
