An eco-warrior glues himself to the M25 and travels through turmoil as police officers finally arrest 25 protesters two hours later.

ECO-WARRIORS glued to the M25 during the second protest of the week, which caused travel turmoil during the rush hour blockage.

One mob blocked Junction 23 at South Mimms, Hertfordshire, and another mob closed the main roadway from Junction 8 in Reigate to Sally to Junction 9 in Leatherhead.

Some have glued their hands to the roads in the Dartford Crossing area at junctions 1A and 1B.

The climate change group, dressed in hibis and wielding a banner that says “Turn off the engine,” leaned in the middle of the road in both places.

Protesters also put up a sign saying “I’m sorry for the confusion” because the angry driver soon lost patience.

Some stuck drivers shouted, “We will lose our job,” and rang their horns, but the demonstrator refused to upset.

Others shouted: “Go and find something better in your life.”

A police officer eventually appeared, but made a subtle attempt to move the activists.

The policeman put his hands in his pockets and simply said, “I have to ask you to move.”

He didn’t even see the group because he made a weak order before returning to the car.

Insulation UK officials are demanding that the government “make significant legislative changes to begin reducing emissions.”

A spokeswoman added that he is still taking action today to insulate British homes, create thousands of jobs and save lives.

Some of the people who held up after 8 am were NHS workers trying to go home after night shifts.

“I’m exhausted. I’m not happy with the situation,” Jay told LBC.

And pharmacist Graham Weidle, who can’t get a job, said, “We need to open a pharmacy in Soho.

“In my opinion [Insulate Britain] We are going in the wrong direction about it. They do this for effect, but not for sympathy.

“We all support climate change, sustainability, and a more regenerative way of life, but this doesn’t help.

“Every car here has an engine, and it’s tens of thousands of cars.

“They are just against themselves. I don’t think they have any support.”

“This is useless”

In response to criticism, an Insulate Britain spokesman said, “You are angry. We are. You are afraid of your work. We are. You feel helpless. Yes, we did too.

“But when you sit on the road, Boris Johnson gets up and pays attention, so we’re staying until 10 Downing Street gets to work.”

“The people in the car are angry, resentful, and tired. Of course.

“What to do. What stupidity. What idiot. So why are we doing it?”

“Because we are angry, we are indignant, and we feel disgust beyond words.

“Because we don’t wait and we don’t see our families suffering, their lives have been destroyed and our country has been betrayed. Never. Never.”

Not only is this behavior very dangerous in that it can endanger life, but it is also environmentally counterproductive by causing more delays and more vehicle emissions.

Edmond KingAA President

A swarm of police officers finally arrived at the scene, and Sally police arrested a total of 25 people in connection with the incident between Junctions 8 and 10.

Officials said they were also present at the scene of four serious car accidents-but it’s unclear if this was related to the protest.

This follows the turmoil on Monday when more than 90 British insulation members were arrested.

Raised up to madness 5 hour delay for tens of thousands of drivers on the M25 -And things got worse when a ferocious driver tried to pull out a resistant protester to clear the road.

Edmund King, President of AA, said:

“These are some of the busiest sections of the M25 that affect tens of thousands of drivers and negatively impact economic activity.”
