Extinction Rebellion climate protest to end today with Hyde Park closing ceremony

A climate protest that has disrupted parts of London will end today.

In a statement Extinction Rebellion said:

We would like to thank Londoners for opening their hearts and demonstrating their willingness to act on that truth. We know we have disrupted your lives. We do not do this lightly. We only do this because this is an emergency. It is now time to go back into our communities, whether in London, around the UK or internationally.

Extinction Rebellion also said to expect more actions "very soon", adding that there will be a "closing ceremony" at Speaker's Corner in Hyde Park today at 5pm.
