Environmental protesters have blocked some of London’s busiest roads in a bid to bring the capital to a standstill.
Activists are targeting five central locations as they demand the Government declare a climate emergency.
The first human roadblock closed Waterloo Bridge to traffic in both directions on Monday morning before protesters descended onto the roads near Oxford Street and Marble Arch.
Some demonstrations have even turned violent as protesters smashed windows and vandalised doors at the headquarters of oil giant Shell in Lambeth, south-west London.
