Insulate Britain activists are blocking traffic on a busy intersection in the City of London.

The group have restarted their actions in the week before the COP26 climate summit in Glasgow.

The A10 Bishopsgate in Liverpool Street is being obstructed this morning.

Insulate Britain – an offshoot of Extinction Rebellion – held four weeks of controversial rush hour blockades of key roads in and out of London in a bid to drive publicity for its aims.

It wants the prime minister to commit to retrofitting 29 million homes by 2030 to tackle climate change and fuel poverty simultaneously.

The environmental group has called for speed limits to be halved from 20mph to 10mph during their protests.

A spokesperson said: ‘Insulate Britain is committed to non-violent direct action. We are calling on our government to stop 8,500 people dying every year because they can’t keep warm, to stop millions of British families being cold and hungry, to act to protect us from the unfolding terror of mass starvation which threatens national security.

‘This is the climate crisis, the betrayal of Britain by our government that we seek to avoid.’
