A statement from Extinction Rebellion said: “The action comes at a crucial time: the British public is waking up this morning to a 54% rise in energy price caps, which charities say is leaving millions of people unable to pay their bills .

“The government is making the decision to continue its reliance on fossil fuels as wages of war in Ukraine rather than accelerate the transition to a renewable energy-led future.

Just months after the COP26 ‘last chance’, Boris Johnson is now claiming the current crisis calls for a ‘climate change passport’.

They added: “All of this is happening *despite recent polls showing the UK public now wants climate action amid the energy crisis. *

“Extinction Rebellion is here to say *Not on our behalf.*”

Police officers are now responding to activists at a site in Tyburn, Birmingham.

West Midlands Police tweeted: “We are working to deal with this as soon as possible.”

Six people have now been arrested at three locations in Thurrock, Essex Police said.

The force tweeted: “We are currently dealing with three incidents in #Thurrock where there have been reports of a group of people blocking the roads.

“So far six people have been arrested.

“It’s affecting the Navigator Fuel Centre, Esso in #Purfleet and Askew Farm Lane.

“Drivers are asked to avoid the area.”
