Climate: Activists block traffic
Extinction Rebellion protesters blocked off one of London’s busiest transport hubs.
Climate change activists built a wooden structure at Oxford Circus in London, bringing traffic to a standstill and were then surrounded by police.
It comes as the group is planning a “red handed” protest which will see it spray-paint hand prints around Westminster.
A spokesman said: “We will raise our red hands, taking responsibility for our actions – we all have blood on our hands.”
