M25 protests: Insulate Britain climate activists defy jail threat to block motorway near Heathrow
The Independent says climate activists have defied jail threats to disrupt traffic on a section of London’s M25 motorway in another day of action.
At least 30 members of the Insulate Britain group, which is demanding government action on home insulation to cut emissions, blocked a slip road at Junction 14 near Heathrow Airport.
They arrived at around 8am on Monday morning and were moved onto a verge by police.
The protest, one of several to take place on major motorways in South East England in recent weeks, came just days after the government won an interim injunction against activists occupying roads around the UK’s busiest port in Dover and other roads – including the M25.
