Just Stop Oil activists have sprayed a Rolex shop in London with orange paint in the latest of a string of protests.

At around 8.30 am on Friday, two Just Stop Oil supporters sprayed the shop in Knightsbridge, central London, the group said.

One of the supporters, Jennifer Kowalski, 26, said: “There's no point in having jewel-encrusted watches when they're destined to be lost in floods and climate change is happening now.

“An energy crisis is happening now."

She added: "We do this because we want to protect the things and the people we care about.

“I'm not willing to stand by as the refusal to improve life for everyday people causes my loved ones to suffer.”

The latest protest comes days after Just Stop Oil activists sprayed paint on the facade of two luxury car showrooms in central London.

Protesters began spraying paint from a fire extinguisher over the premises of high-end dealers Ferrari and Bentley on the corner of Berkeley Square and Bruton Street at 8.30am on Wednesday.

The Metropolitan Police arrested two people on suspicion of criminal damage in relation to that protest.

The force tweeted: “Protestors have sprayed paint at the Ferrari and Bentley garages in Berkley Square at 08:39hrs.

“Met officers were rapidly on scene and at 08:46hrs, arrested two people for criminal damage.

“They have been taken into custody to a central London police station."
