Climate change campaigners have vowed to continue blocking Tower Bridge as plans to disrupt the capital’s roads enter a third day.
Members of the group Extinction Rebellion have threatened to swarm traffic hotspots until 3pm today aiming to cause gridlock.
Extinction Rebellion’s Roz Bird said: “Desperate times call for bold tactics. Good planets are hard to find. And we very much want one for our children and their children.”
Police have warned motorists not to travel by car or motorbike and to expect long delays.
A Met spokesman said: “If you drive into London please note attempting to drive through protestors in the road is very dangerous and illegal.”
Campaigners plan to gather at Parliament Square on Saturday at 10am for further demonstrations.
