Climate change activists glue themselves to fence outside Jeremy Corbyn's house

Four climate change campaigners from the Extinction Rebellion group glued themselves to a fence outside Jeremy Corbyn’s home in Islington.

The four activists, who glued themselves to the Labour leader’s fence have been spoken to by police.

They reportedly said it was a bid to get the Labour leader to commit to tackling climate change. 

They said they are “all Jeremy Corbyn supporters” but want the Labour Party to do more to tackle the countries climate crisis.

The Labour leader – who has warned about the risks of climate chaos – has agreed to meet with the protesters in Parliament next week according to a party source.

Officers spoke to the protesters

A spokesperson for the Metropolitan Police told the Mirror: “Police are dealing with reports of a disturbance outside a residential property in Islington.

“Local officers remain at the scene and the incident remains ongoing.”

It comes after more climate change activists have glued themselves to a DLR train at Canary Wharf in London.

Two protesters climbed on the Docklands Light Railway carriage as part of a third day of action to pressure politicians to take more radical measures to protect the environment.

A man dressed in a dark suit and a woman wearing a black coat stood on the roof of a train in the station holding a banner which read: “Climate Emergency. Act Now.”

A third protester glued his hand to the window of the train.

Commuters were stunned by the protest, which caused huge delays to their journeys.

But one bystander claimed she was “happy to see the protests”.

Diane John, visiting London with her teenage daughter for the day, told Mirror Online: “We are pleased to see it.

“We were just saying something about our carbon footprint needs to be done. It’s about the environment. The thing is, ‘what do we do?’

XR demonstrations have been taking place at Parliament Square, Waterloo Bridge, Oxford Circus and Marble Arch this week.

The protests have led to road closures, traffic gridlock and serious disruption to public transport and local businesses, with 55 bus routes closed and 500,000 people affected.
