“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.
Around 40 eco protesters from Insulate Britain have blocked Parliament Square, glueing themselves to the road and bringing traffic to a halt.
