Extinction Rebellion: Climate activists target London finance

Extinction Rebellion activists blocked entrances at the London Stock Exchange and climbed on top of a train as part of a day targeting financial institutions.

Twenty-six people were arrested on suspicion of aggravated trespassing after protesters blocked the stock exchange in the City.

In Canary Wharf, east London, five people glued themselves to a Docklands Light Railway service.

Up until midday, 1,130 people have been arrested since the protests began on 15 April.
