Extinction Rebellion activists superglue themselves to Speaker’s chair

Climate activists have glued themselves together around the Speaker’s chair in the House of Commons.

The protestors, from Extinction Rebellion UK, were on a guided tour of Parliament when they took the action, a spokeswoman said.

As it happens MPs are currently on their summer break and are due to return next week.  But it is not likely many of them have missed this protest on the news.

Extinction Rebellion say that everyone inside the building had entered legally via an official tourist booking.

A commons spokesperson said: We are aware of an incident on the parliamentary estate.  We are currently dealing with the situation as a matter of urgency.

The Met Police tweeted: The Met is aware of a demonstration by a number of protesters at the Palace of Westminster.  Met Police and parliamentary staff are responding.
