Daily Mail published this video item, entitled “Eco-warrior protesters Insulate Britain arrested after they block M25 and hit the M3 and M11” – below is their description.


Police has finally taken a firm stance on the protesters from Insulate Britain who are bent on causing mayhem by shutting down Britain’s busiest road in rush hour – with members revealing they even warned officers they would do it again after being released without charge and bail.

The mob turned up to blockade junction 28 at Brentwood at around 8.30am on Friday but officers from Essex Police were waiting for them and arrested them before they could start their protest. A small number broke through but traffic can still pass. But Surrey Police failed to stop them doing the same for the third morning this week, with a group now sitting on the junction 9 sliproad with long queues already building on the main carriageway. It came as Priti Patel last night ordered police to take ‘decisive action’ against the ‘selfish’ eco-protesters and described the ‘guerrilla tactics’ of Insulate Britain as ‘completely unacceptable’ after the eco-group held traffic at four of the busiest junctions of the M25 on Wednesday. They shut five on Monday and at least one so far on Friday.
