Extinction Rebellion activist tries to smash entrance of Department for Transport

Extinction Rebellion activists have defied a police ban on protesting in London just hours after it was introduced.

On Tuesday morning, the group's co-founder, Gail Bradbrook, was filmed climbing the entrance to the Department for Transport in Westminster.

Extinction Rebellion (XR), which has previously said it is acceptable to scare people about climate change, said other protesters had glued themselves to the building.
