Ten arrested as protestors attempt to cause mayhem by walking into traffic on M25

Police have made 10 arrests after climate change protesters caused disruption on the M25 this morning, Friday October 29.

Officers were called at around 8am this morning to reports that a number of people had been seen walking into traffic to block both carriageways between Junctions 28 and 29.

Police responded swiftly to remove people from the road and both carriageways were reopened within 30 minutes.

Chief Inspector Lee Devall said: “Not only will incidents of this nature be frustrating for road users trying to reach their destination, walking into fast moving traffic is extremely dangerous.

“I’d like to thank road users today for their patience and understanding.

“You’ve helped us to clear the area quickly, to keep people safe, minimise disruption, and keep Essex moving.

“Our teams are experienced at dealing with incidents which cause significant disruption and are well prepared for them.”

“We will continue to deal with these incidents robustly.”
