Around 50 protesters have glued both their feet and their hands to the ground in front of the UK parliament. 


The police are currently trying to unstick them as they have blocked two roads not allowing cars to pass.

“Around 40 activists have used superglue to stick to the ground, frustrating and delaying our response. Specialist teams are on scene and train for this scenario. They are working to remove any glue and make arrests,” the Metropolitan Police said in a statement.

“Insulate Britain have the right to assemble and protest, however they do not have the right to cause serious disruption to London and prevent others from going about their business,” the statement added.

One of the protesters went further and glued his hand to a police van.

The idea turned out to be unsafe as a hand of a protester was seen bleeding.

Over 34 people were already arrested for their actions.

The protesters are members of the Insulate Britain environmental group which is involved in the global environmental movement Extinction Rebelion.
