Insulate Britain spark traffic chaos as they BLOCK Blackwall Tunnel in ANOTHER protest after weeks of misery
ECO-protesters have once again sparked traffic chaos by blocking Blackwall Tunnel in London.
It is the latest in a series of protests by Insulate Britain, who have repeatedly brought traffic to a standstill on the M4 and M25.
The activists want the government to commit to providing insulation for 29 million homes.
In recent weeks they have blocked slip roads, glued themselves to the road and poured paint onto the carriageway of the M25, which runs around London.
Speaking this morning on GB News, Craig Scudder said: "We're carrying on. There'll be disruption today and I apologise for that but we're carrying on until the government issues a meaningful statement on how they're going to address this issue.
"We're creating jobs, we're stopping people dying, we're taking people out of fuel poverty – it really is just a win win win."
The Government obtained a High Court injunction against the protests last week, meaning anyone blocking the M25 could be found to be in contempt of court, carrying a maximum penalty of two years in prison or an unlimited fine.
But the brazen eco warriors have not been deterred, continuing to block roads across the country.
Activists stormed the M4 on Friday and glued themselves to the M1 during rush hour before a frustrated driver ripped a sign from their hands and lobbed it into some bushes.
They targeted Junction 3 of the M4 near Heathrow Airport and the M1 at Junction 1 at Brent Cross, north London.
Around 30 hi-vis-wearing environmentalists joined the demonstration in their tenth protest in a matter of weeks.
Some chained themselves together as they brandished banners in the middle of the road, while others glued themselves to the surface and even each other.
The troop included eight people released from police custody on Thursday after blocking the M25, and others who were arrested earlier last week.
Drivers stuck in the hold-up quickly lost patience, with one seen ripping signs away from Insulate Britain protestors.
Other motorists sounded their horns in an attempt to get them to budge.
