Environmental protesters go ahead with action to disrupt England’s busiest motorway

Environmental protesters have gone ahead with action to disrupt sections of England’s busiest motorway despite a major Metropolitan Police operation to foil their plans. A spokeswoman for Just Stop Oil said “action has gone ahead in multiple locations on the M25” on Monday morning. The demonstrations come as the latest Cop27 international climate change talks in Egypt get under way. Surrey Police tweeted that they had reports there were protesters at a number of places along the motorway, resulting in some temporary lane closures.
