M25 traffic: Seventy-one arrests after climate change protesters block parts of motorway for second time in three days

Seventy-one climate change protesters have been arrested after parts of the M25 were blocked off by activists for the second time in three days, causing huge queues of traffic. Protesters from Insulate Britain, which included an 82-year-old man, brought traffic to a halt at several sections of Britain's busiest motorway on Wednesday morning. The demonstrators targeted Junction 23 for South Mimms in Hertfordshire, as well as the main carriageway from Junction 8 at Reigate to Junction 9 at Leatherhead, both in Surrey. UPDATE: We have now arrested 15 people in connection with this incident. — Surrey Police (@SurreyPolice) September 15, 2021 ❗ We are currently in attendance at Junction 8 and 10 of the M25 overseeing a protest which was reported just after 8am today (15 September). 1/3 pic.twitter.com/puP6J7x7qa Surrey …
