Protesters have been blocking the M25 around London for a number of days now to demand Government action on home insulation. Campaigners from Insulate Britain sat on the road holding banners at several junctions on the UK’s busiest motorway this week, resulting in long delays.
Eighteen protesters belonging to ‘Insulate Britain’ have now halted traffic near Junction 23 at South Mimms.
Another group have shut down the main carriageway of the M25 anti-clockwise in Surrey between junction 9 at Leatherhead and junction 8 at Reigate.
Protesters held aloft signs saying ‘sorry for the disruption’ as they faced a barrage of anger from motorists.
Police have rushed to the scene shortly after 8am this morning.
