M25 blocked by climate activists sparking lorry driver fury ‘We’ll lose our jobs!’

The clip shows approximately ten people in fluorescent jackets crouching down in front of a lorry on the busy motorway, which circles London, at South Mimms in Hertfordshire. One angry road user can be heard complaining bitterly about their demonstration, while horns blare loudly in the background.

Insulate Britain, which is demanding Government action on home insulation, has stopped traffic at several sections of Britain’s busiest motorway.

The pressure group, which tweeted footage from the scene, commenting: “#InsulateBritain are back.

“@BorisJohnson can you hear us yet?”

Insulate Britain is campaigning for the UK government to fully fund and take responsibility for the insulation of all social housing in Britain by 2025 and “to produce within four months a legally binding national plan to fully fund and take responsibility for the full low-energy and low-carbon whole-house retrofit”.

Similar protests on Monday resulted in the arrests of 77 people.

On that occasion there were protests at junctions 20 for Kings Langley, Herts, 14 for Heathrow terminal four, three for Swanley in Kent, six for Godstone, Surrey and 31 for Lakeside, Essex, on Monday.

Police were first called at about 8am, with all junctions fully reopened by lunchtime.

Commenting on Twitter, Dr Neelam Raina posted: “Children stuck on school buses, people heading to hospital appointments stuck in cars.

“A friend heading for long awaited essential surgery stuck. #M25protests

“Whilst I support the cause whole heartedly, this is not a way to get popular support. #InsulateBritain #M25”.
