The bridge in south-east London was closed for over an hour on Saturday after the stunt by climate group Climate Siren.

City of London Police said a man and a woman were arrested on suspicion of causing criminal damage and a public nuisance.

A man was arrested for assisting them.

The sign read Climate change, our next challenge and was placed over the Agitos at 14:00 BST.
