Several arrests have been made after climate protesters struck again on the M25 and M11 this morning (Friday).

It came just hours after Home Secretary Priti Patel told police officers to take "decisive action" against any "selfish" protesters who have continued to cause disruption this week. 

The group named Insulate Britain attempted to block junction 28 in Brentwood and junction 8 of the M11 in Bishop's Stortford. 

Officers managed to arrest a number of demonstrators before they could get onto the road.

Photos from the scene show police officers are attending but some protestors have made it onto the road and are now sat down. 

Protesters from the Insulate Britain group stopped thousands of motorists at four junctions on the M25 shortly after 8am on Wednesday for the second time in three days. 

The demonstrators, including some who had glued themselves to the road, were demanding Government action on home insulation. 

Scores of protesters were arrested on Wednesday by police across Surrey, Herts, Kent and the Met - with totals given by each force suggest 86 were arrested overall. 

Essex Police also made 12 arrests on Monday following a similar protest in Thurrock. 

Priti Patel said: “Peaceful protest is a cornerstone of our democracy and there will always be space for legitimate groups to make their voices heard. 

“But this Government will not stand by and allow a small minority of selfish protesters to cause significant disruption to the lives and livelihoods of the hard-working majority. 

“The guerrilla tactics used by Insulate Britain detract from their cause and I know the public will agree that the scenes on the M25 this week were completely unacceptable.”
