Climate protests close London bridge; 570 arrests in 4 days

Roads and buses have been disrupted and now the Tube could be targeted

"While we respect the right to peaceful protest and agree with the need to act on climate change, we don't agree that passengers should have their well-earned Easter Break holiday plans with family and friends disrupted", the airport said in a statement.

The Extinction Rebellion group has reeked havoc in London since Monday, causing disruption to at least 500,000 people with protests dotted around the City.

Speaking of the protests, Thompson said she couldn't attend from the beginning as she was celebrating her birthday.

The group, calling itself Extinction Rebellion Ireland, urged the Government to declare a climate and ecological emergency.

Police have said they expect the demonstrations to continue in the next few weeks.

Farhana Yamin, a protester who was arrested on Tuesday, told the BBC that she would like to apologize to commuters who were affected by the protest, but then attempted to justify the actions of Extinction Rebellion regardless. "This allows us to free up significant numbers of officers whilst responding to local policing".

Ken Marsh, chairman of the Metropolitan Police Federation, told BBC Breakfast on Friday that protests had been "very, very difficult" for the force because it was an "alien" situation for a lot of them.

More than 1,000 officers have been deployed daily to deal with the protest.

Some have been asked to work 12-hour shifts, while rest days and leave has been cancelled.

Debbie Wright, an engineer from Norwich, who was among four Norwich activists to spend Wednesday night in custody said she had joined the protests because she wanted younger generations to have a better future. They have my full backing in doing so'.

Dame Emma left the protest before specialist officers arrived to remove people from the frame of the boat.

A further three people who were charged by British Transport Police appeared in court on Thursday morning.

Extinction Rebellion has called for non-violent civil disobedience to push the British government to reduce net greenhouse gas emissions to zero by 2025 and to stop what it says is a global climate crisis.
