Travel chaos and more than 120 arrests amid London climate change protests

Major roads in central London have been blocked for a second day by climate change protests, which have seen more than 120 people arrested.

Parliament Square, Waterloo Bridge, Oxford Circus and Marble Arch remain closed due to the Extinction Rebellion demonstrations.

Motorists face gridlocked traffic on a number of alternative routes, such as Westminster Bridge and Blackfriars Bridge.

The Metropolitan Police said half a million people have been affected with 55 bus routes diverted.

It warned that demonstrations are expected to continue “throughout the coming weeks”.
