Last month, young activists had to be removed from London’s Science Museum by the police, after they staged a protest against oil-giant Shell sponsoring its climate change exhibition.

Now, Channel 4 News has learnt the Science Museum signed a gagging clause before staging the exhibition, agreeing not to damage Shell’s reputation.

One scientist who contributed to the exhibition is so unhappy with what has happened, she has asked for her name to be removed from the installations.
