Insulate Britain: hundreds of arrests since action started

Forty-nine members of Insulate Britain have been arrested after the climate activist group blocked three major junctions in defiance of a series of injunctions banning them from protesting anywhere on England’s strategic road network. The group is calling on the government to commit to insulating all Britain’s homes by 2030 as a first step to tackling the climate crisis. According to the group’s estimates, 146 members have been arrested 690 times since 13 September.
