Climate protesters have blocked parts of the M25 for the second time in three days and a crash on the motorway has been blamed on activists.

Insulate Britain, which is demanding Government action on home insulation, stopped traffic at two sections of Britain’s busiest motorway.

A crash involving four vehicles led to a woman in her 50s being airlifted to hospital with serious injuries.

Surrey Police have said the investigation into the collision is ongoing, adding: “It is too early in the investigation to know if these two incidents were linked.”

But witness Steve Glenn, who was commuting to work clockwise on the M25, told The Telegraph: “The cars ploughed into the back of each other. It was so blatantly obvious what had happened. The standstill traffic was caused by the protest.

“One car was squashed into half its size.”

I mean I just about got Extinction Rebellion, funny pantomime street theatre where people get to pelt them with rotten food. Grand old British traditional and all that. But these ecoloons seem so far around the bend, its difficult to know what to say about them. Maybe if I upset them they will insulate my house?
