Surrey Police response to protests on the M25 this morning

The Police force has sent us these details following the arrests of 8 people. 

"Further arrests are likely to be made throughout the day as officers with specialist removal equipment are working to ensure that all protesters are removed safely, after a number of them glued themselves to pumps and signs on the petrol station forecourts. One of them has also glued himself to the top of a lorry. Officers with specialist removal equipment are also at both service stations and are working to ensure that all protesters are removed safely, after a number of them glued themselves to pumps and signs on the petrol station forecourts. One of them has also glued himself to the top of a lorry.

Officers were called to Clacket Lane Services around 7.02am following reports that a group of protesters had turned up. A further call was received around 7.06am that protesters were on site at Cobham Services petrol station and were damaging the pumps.

The pumps have all been switched off and motorists were diverted away from both service stations.

We appreciate the considerable disruption this is causing and we are working as quickly as we can to remove the protesters safely from the site and allow both petrol stations to re-open.

Please bear with us while we continue to deal with these ongoing incidents."
