Climate Protesters Arrested as Extinction Rebellion Targets London City Airport

Climate activists from Extinction Rebellion environmentalist group on October 10 began the first of what they said would be three days of protests at London City Airport.

One man managed to board and delay a flight leaving for Dublin, Ireland, and another glued himself to the top of a British Airways plane.

Large numbers of police were reported to have been on the scene.

Toby Aston, who filmed this footage, said: “Some protesters have conceded that a three-day disruption is ‘unlikely’.”
