Climate activists shut down parts of central London as police arrest more than 130 demonstrators

Extinction Rebellion protesters are set to bring London to a standstill as they begin two weeks of demonstrations to urge governments around the world to take action on the climate crisis.
More than 130 arrests have already been made including an 81-year-old woman as the environmental activists attempt to occupy 12 sites in the capital including Westminster Bridge, Trafalgar Square and outside Downing Street.
Extinction Rebellion say the protests will be five times bigger than the demonstrations in April which brought parts of London to a standstill.
Demonstrations are also taking place in 23 cities across the world as part of the group’s “international rebellion”.
