Climate change activists have been holding a second mass cycle ride in Norwich. More than 200 people took part in the event organised by Extinction Rebellion. Campaigners want Norwich City Council to declare a climate emergency as other cities have done. The disruption was minimal but the protestors hoped it would get people thinking.

"We are doing this to keep drawing attention to the need for all of us, and our government, to make big changes. We can't go on doing business as usual, getting in our cars, buying lots of consumer goods, throwing away plastic, building huge roads across delicate ecosystems. And a future of less cars and more bikes is probably going to be a better future for us too, not just the planet."

– Amy Wilson, Extinction Rebeliion Norwich
