UK climate activists have been blocking highways over the past month, even after a court order was issued, warning them of possible jail terms if they carried on disrupting traffic.
The environmental group Insulate Britain once again staged a protest on Friday, blocking Junction 3 of the M4 motorway near Heathrow Airport and the M1 at Brent Cross, north London. According to the organisation, eight activists who were released from police custody after blocking the M25 in Essex, have joined the demonstrators.
The group claims it will continue its protests until the government makes "a meaningful statement indicating that they will insulate all of Britain's 29 million leaky homes by 2030".
Several videos have since been posted on Twitter, reportedly showing the activists disrupting traffic and causing immense queues. In some videos, police officers can be seen dragging the protesters from the highway in a bid to break the deadlock.
