Extinction Rebellion protester grounds flight at London City Airport

Extinction Rebellion protester grounds flight at London City Airport”

But during a speech in Northampton this morning Mr Corbyn said: 'To have any hope of keeping global temperature rises to a manageable level we need immediate and radical action.

A London City Airport spokesperson said: "We can confirm that a booked passenger that climbed on top of an aircraft at London City Airport has been removed".

The airport said it was investigating the incident concerning the BA plane to "ensure the safe and secure continuation of service". The plane was forced to return to the terminal and police boarded to arrest the protester. As of 12.15PM, there were 55 arrivals and 58 departures.

Passengers have now reboarded the flight and are waiting for the plane to refuel before it can take off, he added.

"I'm extremely sorry to disturb everybody here".

The Labour leader spoke out after demonstrations in the capital and other parts of the United Kingdom escalated into a three-day Hong Kong-style protest.

London City airport has been targeted over its expansion plans, as well as the noise pollution to local residents.

"It is located in a highly built-up area meaning that its flights cause a lot of noise-misery as well, of course, as climate-deadly pollution".

"This has to stop and Extinction Rebellion are here to stop it".

The group said hundreds of people have already signed up to take part in the protest, which will seem them "non-violently use their bodies" to close the airport.

A spokesman for London City Airport said as of 09:15 BST more than 60 flights which had either arrived or departed. One activist said at least four people had been arrested.

While some protesters got inside the terminal building, flights were continuing, though some were delayed.

Witnesses reported "an extraordinary number of police officers" at the terminal as demonstrators try to emulate protesters who cancelled more than 1,000 flights as they condemned police brutality in Hong Kong.

Protesters also crowded the walkway from the nearby light-rail station and sat on the road outside the airport, while two managed to access the roof.
