Half-term chaos as Insulate Britain eco-mob block roads AGAIN in fresh wave of protests

HALF-TERM travel chaos has already begun as Insulate Britain eco zealots block roads AGAIN in a fresh wave of protests.

The controversial mob promised to pause their tirade of miserable sit-ins across Britain's busiest roads until October 25 – the first day of the kids' week-long break.

And the chaos has started early today, with central-London roads targeted by stone-faced demonstrators clutching banners at rush hour.

Footage taken by a passerby shows huge queues of buses blocking off a junction close to Liverpool Street Station as they battle to get passed the barricade.

Meanwhile, one protester is seen leaning on a car and talking to a driver on Southwark Bridge as frantic commuters remain stuck behind the group.

In a statement released last week, the group said the Government's Heat and Buildings Strategy "fails to meet the challenges we now face".

The plan lays out how the Government will cut carbon emissions from 30 million homes and workplaces.

The Insulate Britain statement read: "Insulate Britain has considered the British Government's Heat and Buildings Strategy, the Net Zero Strategy and the Cost of Net Zero report.

"We concluded that, while these would have been a good first step 30 years ago, they completely fail to meet the challenges we now face."

The group claim the only way to tackle the issue is through a "wartime style national effort" involving "shared sacrifice".

Demonstrators claimed the current plan was to "cross your fingers and hope for the best".

A spokesman added: "Our ancestors fought a civil war to remove such tyranny from these islands and sacrificed their lives to win the rights and freedoms we now enjoy as citizens. 

"Today it is our turn, our responsibility, to rise up against tyranny. We owe that to our ancestors, to our fellow citizens and to those that come after us in the great chain of life."

Insulate Britain earlier said it will “suspend its campaign of civil resistance” until October 25.

In an open letter to Boris Johnson, the group quoted the PM's hero Winston Churchill before writing: "Insulate Britain would like to take this opportunity to profoundly acknowledge the disruption caused over the past five weeks.

"We cannot imagine undertaking such acts in normal circumstances.

"But the dire reality of our situation has to be faced."
