Insulate Britain are to suspend their protests until the 25 October when the school holidays start, then they will unleash chaos.

The activists have sent the Prime Minister, Boris Johnson a letter, despite him being in Spain on holiday, announcing their temporary suspension.

They are asking Johnson to back their policy and that they “profoundly acknowledge the disruption caused over the past five weeks.”

In a warning to the Prime Minister they said protesters could restart blocking roads and motorways and have asked him to “use this time to signal” meaningful action over climate change.

Transport secretary Grant Shapps wrote on Twitter, “Sitting on roads & preventing everyone else from going about their lawful business is downright dangerous and counterproductive.

“Rather than apologising to the motorist now and returning in a week and a half, they must call off their reckless campaign forever.”

In a letter to Boris Johnson, the group wrote, “Insulate Britain would like to take this opportunity to profoundly acknowledge the disruption caused over the past five weeks.

“We cannot imagine undertaking such acts in normal circumstances.

“But the dire reality of our situation has to be faced.

“We invite you to make a meaningful statement that we can trust… that your government will take the lead needed to insulate and retrofit our homes.”

On Tuesday Insulate Britain caused “absolute mayhem” and “frustration” for commuters and were met with an angry mob of drivers who have had enough and got out of their vehicles and started to drag the demonstrators of the road.

GB News presenter Dan Wootton tweeted “I repeat: Insulate Britain are eco terrorists. They must be locked up.

“People are going to die.

“And no police there – shameful.”

An angry mum who was on the school run was blocked by the “eco terrorists” and in a heated row threatened to “drive through” the protesters.
