Police have arrested 23 protesters after members of Insulate Britain attempted to block the M25 for the fifth time.

Surrey Police confirmed a number of Insulate Britain protesters were on the clockwise and anticlockwise carriageways between junction 9 and 10 for Woking of the M25.

The protest was reported at around 8am and officers were called to the scene.

Both carriageways were blocked, but have since been fully reopened by officers who cleared protesters off the road.

Surrey Police said: “Lanes on both clockwise and anticlockwise carriageways of the M25 between junctions 9 and 10 are now fully re-opened after officers cleared all of the Insulate Britain protesters off of the road.

“23 arrests have been made.”

Drivers were advised to avoid the area while officers dealt with the incident.

It comes after a total of 41 people were arrested in connection with the protests on the M25 and A1(M) on Monday.

The climate activists behind the roadblocks “profoundly apologise” for the disruption, they said in an open letter to the home secretary on Monday.

The group has written to Priti Patel, asking for “open dialogue”.
