Protesters close M25 near Godstone NewsPipa

Protesters from the group Just Stop oil shut down the M25 near Godstone this morning, causing a tailback for several miles.

Protesters climbed the overhead gantry of the M25 at six locations, including Junction 6 A22 (Godstone) and Junction 7 M23 in Surrey, to force police to close the road.

M25 chaos today spreads across Kent

Congestion extends to J4 (Orpington) and back to M26, counterclockwise towards Reigate.

A spokesperson for the group contacted the Metropolitan Police Department and national highways last night to tell them that there would be a major disruption to the M25 and that the 30 mph speed limit would be lifted in line with their responsibility to maintain public safety. He said he asked them to do it.

“What were you expecting?” said Indigo Rumblelow, 28, of Just Stop Oil in London.

Is everyone asking if it’s a real name?

He continued, “This government is complicit in an illegal and unconstitutional scheme to issue more new oil and gas licenses and consents. It is a plan that will lead to the loss of the rights and freedoms of millions of people and the death of millions of people.”

Again, police have shown they can’t stop protests on the country’s most important highway, even if they’ve been given advance warning. We are asking the police to respond to what happened.
