Thousands of environmental activists have shut down some of central London’s busiest roads in an attempt to force the government to address escalating climate change.

Members of Extinction Rebellion (XR) took over roads around Parliament Square, Oxford Circus, Marble Arch, Waterloo Bridge and Piccadilly Circus late on Monday morning, in what they hope will be the UK element of an international week of protest.

Organisers said they planned to occupy the streets day and night until at least Wednesday, with many taking part willing to be arrested.

The protests, which XR describes as non-violent civil disobedience, follows similar action last November when thousands of people occupied five central London bridges. Police detained 85 people that day.
