122 arrested in Extinction Rebellion climate change protest in London
More than 100 people have been arrested for taking part in ongoing climate change protests in London.
The number surged to 122 after a police order came into force restricting demonstrations to a site at Marble Arch.
Sky News reports that the Metropolitan Police said to impose the condition limiting the protest to the Marble Arch area it required evidence that serious disruption was being caused to communities in the capital.
“We so far have 55 bus routes closed and 500,000 people affected as a result,” said Chief Superintendent Colin Wingrove.
