Eco-mob grinds M25 London to a HALT: Furious drivers clash with XR splinter group

Angry motorists tried to pull climate change protesters off the road today after they caused chaos across five different sections of the M25 London by blocking junctions, lanes and slip roads during the morning rush hour.

Dozens of demonstrators from Insulate Britain, a new offshoot of Extinction Rebellion (XR), brought major disruption – with one flashpoint taking place near junction 20 at Kings Langley in Hertfordshire as a group sat by traffic lights.

A driver was filmed trying to drag a protester off the road amid tailbacks along the motorway – before around 50 police officers turned up and stood in front of the activists, then arrested them and put them into vans.

National Highways said there was also disruption at junctions three for Swanley in Kent, six for Godstone in Surrey, 14 for London Heathrow Airport’s Terminal Five and 31 for Purfleet in Essex near the Dartford Crossing.

The AA slammed the coordinated action as ‘incredibly dangerous’ and ‘causing more delays and more vehicle emissions’, with tens of thousands of drivers affected as they tried to get to work on the motorway this morning.
