Climate activists have blocked Lambeth Bridge in Westminster to protest against the jailing of Insulate Britain members who breached a court injunction.

Nine protesters from Insulate Britain were sent to prison this week for breaching an injunction designed to prevent the road blockades which have sparked anger among motorists and others affected by the protests.

On Saturday, various climate campaign groups gathered on Lambeth Bridge to protest against the custodial sentences.

Thirty people were arrested at Lambeth Bridge.
