A tunnel leading into Heathrow airport has reopened after it was blocked by protestors.
Activists from 'Rising Up!', opposed to a planned third runway at the airport, blocked the road using three cars. Three protestors were chained to one of the cars.
The drivers of two of the vehicles- both men - were arrested for obstructing a highway and taken into custody at a west London police station.
Heathrow officers worked with Heathrow Airport staff to remove two men and a woman locked to the third car, who were then arrested.
One man has been taken to hospital as a precaution.
The inbound tunnel has now reopened. Traffic should return to normal shortly. Thank you for your patience.
