Just Stop Oil activists have glued themselves to The Mall outside Buckingham Palace this morning.

Around 30 protesters created the block at 8:45am, according to their Twitter account.

They shared an image of the roadblock on social media and said: "30 supporters of Just Stop Oil established a roadblock on The Mall, stopping traffic in either direction.

"They are sitting in the road, and some have glued themselves to the tarmac"

They continued: "This is the moment to come together and resist — we are not prepared to watch while the Government plans for countless millions to die and destroys everything we love.

"We are going to stop new oil whether those in power agree or not. We are not asking, we are going to make it happen."

Around 30 protesters created the block at 8:45am, according to their Twitter account.

Emma Brown, 31, who lives in Glasgow and is one of the Just Stop Oil protestors currently blocking The Mall, said that the activists “would walk 500 miles” to “just stop oil”.

Ms Brown said that the protesters had come down from Scotland and that this was her first demonstration.

She said: “We’ve come down because the Government is pressing ahead with over 100 new fossil fuel licences.

“And that is literally a death sentence for all of us here and for all of you.

“So we can’t allow this to continue. We have to have a cut-off somewhere. We’ve seen the effects already on our doorstep. We’re seeing the effects all over the globe. And this madness has to stop.”
