Earlier this week, National Highways was granted an injunction at the High Court to ban protesters from blocking the main orbital motorway.

It followed five separate days of action which blocked multiple junctions around the M25 and snarled up traffic for many hours, infuriating motorists.

Reacting to the news of this morning’s blockade of Dover, the Transport Secretary Grant Shapps told GB News: “I’m aware of the protests this morning and am in touch with authorities there.

“Obviously the first priority is to stop this.”

He added: “It’s completely counter productive, they are being incredibly irresponsible. This cannot continue.”

The High Court injunction only bans activists from taking action around the M25.

Authorities had feared the group, which vowed to continue its protests despite the ban, would simply move on to disrupt other routes.

MET Officers make further arrests over M25 protests …..

Metropolitan Police officers have made two further arrests in relation to the ongoing investigation into the actions taken to block the M25 by protest group Insulate Britain.

A 36-year-old man was arrested at his home address in Streatham on suspicion of conspiracy to cause public nuisance on Wednesday, 22 September. 

A 51-year-old woman was arrested at her home address in Warrington on suspicion of conspiracy to cause public nuisance on Thursday, 23 September.

This follows three arrests made last week for the same offence. A 55-year-old man, 45-year-old woman and a 49-year-old man were arrested for conspiracy to cause public nuisance on Monday, 13 September. 

In total, Met officers have made 28 arrests for those obstructing the public highway.

Those arrested have been released under investigation whilst the crime team fully investigate all lines of enquiry and pursue all possible offences committed given the amount of material they have seized.

(LONDON) Climate Change Protestors Report: At least three people have been arrested on suspicion of orchestrating protests that caused disruption on the M25 over campaign for action on housing insulation #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Sept.17: The government said it was offering support for energy efficiency measures: Hertfordshire Police said it attempted to engage with protesters before making arrests…

#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. 

Hertfordshire Police detained 18 people at junction 23 for the A1(M)

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”.
