Just Stop Oil protest stops traffic in north London

About 20 protesters stopped traffic in Upper Street in Islington, north London, on Saturday.

It was the latest development in a two-week-long string of protests organised by Just Stop Oil, which is demanding that the government halt new fossil fuel licensing and production.

The Met later said the road had been cleared, and traffic was flowing in both directions.

According to a Just Stop Oil statement issued on Saturday, police have made 554 arrests since the start of the protests two weeks ago.

Since their campaign began on 1 April, Just Stop Oil claims that their supporters have been arrested more than 1,800 times, with seven people currently in prison.
