More than 120 people arrested after climate protesters block bridge in central London
The Independent says Police have arrested 120 people in the past week after climate activists blocked major bridges linking central and south London, including Lambeth and Vauxhall bridges, to stage sit-in protests.
The bridges were closed to traffic for hours on Saturday due to the protests. Activists raised placards reading “betrayed by my government” and “COP has failed” during the demonstrations.
The Metropolitan Police said that the majority of those arrested have been released after investigation, and thanked the public for “their patience while officers worked to remove the groups”.
