Insulate Britain spokesperson and eco-home builder Craig Scudder discusses the group’s continuing protests, the need for public support and his hopes for the upcoming COP26.

On Friday, some activists from the group decided to try and walk along the M25 into oncoming traffic to get their message heard.

Craig tells the Evening Standard; the group is not officially changing tactics to walking along motorways and will continue their sit-ins on key routes instead.

He also talks about protests on roads as a ‘last resort’, apologises to those affected, and discusses the UK’s position as host of the upcoming COP26 Climate Conference in Glasgow.
