Extinction Rebellion Lowestoft take to high street

"We, the people, have chose to do your job and Tell the Truth from the BBC Broadcasting House about where we're headed if we don't change course", Extinction Rebellion said in a statement on its Facebook page about the latest stunt.

Dame Cressida said she hoped the activists would choose to either "protest lawfully" or "go home" after their "failure to take and occupy the streets that they wanted to".

The campaign group has urged protesters not to co-operate if arrested.

Emma Bateman from Lowestoft attended the protests in London with her 81-year-old mother Anne Bateman - who also made the groups flags.

More than 1,100 people have been arrested so far as part of the Extinction Rebellion protests in London.

They served a Section 14 notice - created to prevent "serious disruption" to communities - before removing those who had camped out in Westminster.

She is one of 1300 people to be arrested.

"We are responding to all serious matters and urgent matters of course, carrying on with our crime investigations in homicide or armed robbery", she said.

The demonstration is the latest in a week of long-planned protests by Extinction Rebellion in countries around the world to highlight what it claims is the inadequate response of governments to climate change.

On Friday, demonstrators targeted the BBC offices in central London and other prominent areas, including Trafalgar Square and Bishopsgate.

Extinction Rebellion is calling for urgent action to tackle climate change and wildlife losses.

One demonstrator, Paralympic cyclist James Brown, climbed on top of a British Airways jet, prompting criticism from Dame Cressida, who described the act as "reckless, stupid and dangerous".

Extinction Rebellion has yet to comment on Dame Cressida's comments.
