Extinction Rebellion: More than 100 arrests after police order climate protesters to stay at Marble Arch


More than 100 people have been arrested as part of ongoing climate change protests after police ordered the demonstrators to stay only at Marble Arch.

The number of people held over the Extinction Rebellion demonstrations surged overnight after a police order restricted the protesters to a site at Marble Arch.

Following disruption in the heart of the capital yesterday, groups lingered on Waterloo Bridge and Parliament Square into the early hours of Tuesday.

Transport for London warned that some roads in Westminster and the West End remained blocked as the rush hour approached.

Scotland Yard said there had been 113 arrests in total in connection with the demonstrations in a statement at 6am today.
