Insulate Britain activists have blocked traffic on the M25 for a sixth time, with police attempting to drag protestors off the UK's busiest motorway.

Campaigners from the climate change group sat in front of traffic on Junction 14 of the London ring road by Heathrow Airport.

Spokesperson Liam Norton said: "You can throw as many injunctions at us as you like, raid our savings and confiscate our property, but we are going nowhere.

"This country is going to hell unless you take emergency action to stop putting carbon into the air."

Officers swarmed to the scene to rid the road of the sit-in protestors just after 7am, footage shared by TalkRADIO showed.
