#AceDailyNews says here’s latest on M25 Protest: Met arrests three over ‘orchestration’ and said it also made 14 arrests at junction 25, bringing the total made by all forces after two days of protests to 165 Wednesday and follows protests on Monday when five junctions were blocked and 77 arrests made as Insulate Britain activists stopped traffic on the M25 for the second time this week in their campaign for action on home insulation.

The Met Police said arrests on suspicion of orchestrating the protest were made across the UK.

As of 11:20hrs on Wednesday, 15 September, the Met had cleared junction 25 of the M25 of protestors making 14 arrests for obstructing the public highway. A further three people have been arrested across the country on suspicion of orchestrating the protest.

Officers attended as soon as we had received the information regarding the protest and immediately arrested and removed 11 protesters by 09:25hrs. The remaining three had glued themselves to the road or to each other. As soon as these protesters were unglued they were arrested.

A number of protesters have been demonstrating around the M25 motorway this week and have caused significant disruption to motorists, commuters travelling to and from work and businesses whose vehicles use this route to deliver goods. It is our intention to remove these protesters as soon as it is safe and we have sufficient officers and transport to take them into custody.

We cannot remove protesters who are glued to the road without specialist equipment and trained officers. This was happening at multiple locations around the M25 and it took time to resolve – time which could have been spent policing our communities in London.

We consider their actions to be unreasonable and unsafe highway obstruction and we will respond as quickly as possible and robustly to any incidents of this nature.

Three other police forces made 71 arrests as demonstrators targeted other sections of the UK’s busiest motorway on Wednesday.

There were long delays at junctions 1a and 1b for Dartford, Kent; eight for Reigate and nine for Leatherhead, Surrey; and 23 for South Mimms in Hertfordshire.

Protesters blocked roundabouts and the motorway itself, while some glued themselves to the road surface.

Surrey Police said it arrested 32 people, Hertfordshire Police 18 and Kent Police 21.

Announcing Wednesday’s action, Insulate Britain said 89 of its members were taking part saying “sitting in the road makes Boris Johnson sit up and take notice”.

It wants the government to make “a meaningful commitment to insulate Britain’s 29 million leaky homes”.

In response to Monday’s protests, a government spokeswoman said it was “investing £1.3bn this year alone to support people to install energy efficiency measures, and our upcoming Heat and Buildings Strategy will set out how we decarbonise the nation’s homes in a way that is fair, practical and affordable”.
