Daily Mail published this video item, entitled “Animal Rebellion protesters scale DEFRA and Home Office and set off red flares” – below is their description.

Animal rights activists scaled the Defra and Home Office building in London today as they demanded ‘government support for a plant-based food system’ at Cop26. Several activists from Animal Rebellion climbed up the structure on Marsham Street in Westminster, which houses both departments, from about 6am this morning. The group, which is affiliated to Extinction Rebellion , organised the protest ahead of the United Nations climate change summit in Glasgow which starts this Sunday. Animal Rebellion, which was founded in July 2019, said it would continue to take action until the Government ‘defunds meat and subsidises a plant-based transition’. Police, firefighters and paramedics were all at the scene, and the protesters – who were all wearing climbing equipment – then dropped a banner over the entrance. The large yellow sign read: ‘Cop: Invest in a plant-based future’, while another activist stood in front of the building holding a placard saying: ‘Defund meat’.
