Two Just Stop Oil protestors jailed for up to three years

Two Just Stop Oil activists have been jailed for up to three years, after causing traffic gridlock when they scaled a bridge on the Dartford Crossing in October last year.

The judge said he wanted to deter others from copying them.

At the same time, another climate campaign group – Extinction Rebellion – says it’s making a shift away from disruptive protests – and will focus on building relationships instead of roadblocks.

They’ve just started four days of protest in central London.
