Over 700 climate change activists arrested as protests disrupt travel in London

Police were filmed clashing with pro-Brexit protesters outside Parliament today - after being spotted raving and skateboarding with environmentalists during the week.

London's jails are at capacity and officers are worked to the bone as police tried to maintain law and order at a range of different protests across the city, making hundreds of arrests.

One voice from the crowd brands the officers "scum", while another says "I hope you're f***ing proud of yourselves".

Environmental protesters who have blocked London roads and bridges for more than three days said Thursday they plan to take their civil disobedience campaign to Heathrow, Europe's busiest airport, at the start of the Easter holiday weekend.The Extinction Rebellion group said it would mount a protest at the airport on Friday.

Ken Marsh, chairman of the Metropolitan Police Federation, told BBC Breakfast on Friday the protests had been "very, very difficult" for the force because it was an "alien" situation for a lot of them. Unlawful behaviour will not be tolerated.

However many demonstrators chose to stay at the Waterloo Bridge site, drumming, dancing and singing across the bridge.

In the blazing sunshine on Waterloo Bridge, police lifted protesters and carried them off to waiting police vans.

Conservative MP Andrew Rosindell had previously said: '[Police] should be clearing the streets so Londoners can get to work.

Metropolitan Police Commissioner Cressida Dick said the policing operation had been unlike any she had experienced in nearly four decades of policing, and called for the "miserable" disruption to end.
