Mee was dragged onto the platform in Canning Town, East London, and stoned by commuters during a rush hour protest in 2019.

Edmund Blackman, prosecutor, said the couple were only on the locomotive for 20 minutes but 48,000 people were affected on their morning journey.

Ovland, Keinton Mandeville, Somerset and Mee, of Bristol, were found guilty of obstructing a railway line at Inner London crown court and were given a community order.

Judge Silas Reid told the pair: “Each of you is part of a team under the broader Extinction Rebellion umbrella.

“This is a protest on an extremely important area.

“However, it does not matter whether your argument is entirely on the right side or not.”
