Around a dozen Insulate Britain activists have blocked ambulances this morning as they sat in the middle of the road at Old Street just yards away from Moorfields Eye Hospital.

Protesters had glued their hands to the tarmac and ambulances with blue lights on where caught up in the tailbacks of stationary traffic.

A reporter who was at Old Street said on Twitter that Insulate Britain had stopped ambulances from getting to their call outs.

The group had also blocked Junction 25 of the M25 at Waltham Cross and a woman who was caught up in the queuing traffic said Insulate Britain are “a disgrace, an absolute disgrace.”

She said, “My daughter is late to school.

“You are messing with children’s education because you are selfish.”

Tracey Mallagan, a spokeswoman for the group, said, “If governments don’t act soon to reduce emissions, we face a terrifying situation.

“We won’t be worrying about shortages of pasta or loo rolls because law and order breaks down pretty quickly when there is not enough food to go round.

“The Government won’t be wondering if there are enough hospital beds or ventilators, but whether there are enough people left to bury the dead.

“The Government is destroying our country. Boris Johnson should be taken to court for treason. Our flesh and blood are being tossed aside as expendable.”

Speaking to LBC Grant Shapps said, “It’s dangerous, it’s really outrageous, and actually, ironically, it probably adds to pollution as cars idle, waiting for their nonsense… for them to be unglued from the road.”

He added, “These people can go to jail for what they’re doing.

“I very much imagine that the courts will take very dimly of the view that they’re ignoring a court injunction. It can be unlimited fines, it can be six months in jail, we have been actively serving door-to-door individuals – over 100 have been served.

“And I think we’ll start to see the courts take a very, very dim view and lock some of these people up, it is unacceptable.”
