Climate change activists arrested

Four climate change activists are being questioned by police after scaling the gates of Buckingham Palace and chaining themselves to the railings. Three men and a woman who said they represented the Climate Siren group locked themselves to the centre gate and south centre gate around 2pm yesterday.

They were wearing t-shirts bearing the words "climate emergency. 10% annual emission cuts," and wielding megaphones.Two of them held a banner carrying a quote from the Prince of Wales reading:

"The doomsday clock of climate change is ticking ever faster towards midnight. We are simply not reacting quickly enough." The four were removed by police using a cherry-picker more than four hours later as officers brought the protest to an end.
