A man and a woman have been arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to cause public nuisance by police investigating Insulate Britain’s protests on the M25, Scotland Yard said.

The Metropolitan Police said a 36-year-old man was arrested in Streatham, south London, on Wednesday and a 51-year-old woman was arrested in Warrington, in Cheshire, on Thursday.
