Climate change protesters disrupt London rail services

*EDITORS PLEASE NOTE: CONTAINS PROFANE LANGUAGE* British Transport Police said they had responded to incidents at Shadwell, Stratford and Canning Town, near to London's Canary Wharf financial district.

Footage showed protesters unfurling an Extinction Rebellion protest group banner on top of a stationary London Underground train at Canning Town, before one was pelted with food and physically dragged off by commuters.

Extinction Rebellion launched a wave of civil disobedience on October 7 to highlight the risks posed by climate change and the accelerating loss of plant and animal species.

Police in London said on Wednesday (October 16) they had arrested 1,642 people since the protests started.
