WATCH – Police intervene to stop recording of parliament protests in amusing incident

Greenpeace protest - Twitter @GreenpeaceUK

Police have intervened to stop Sky News from recording protests in parliament by Greenpeace activists. 

The protest on Monday, October 24 was held to raise awareness of the plight of people in fuel poverty whilst MPs quibbled over policies and leadership

Many are concerned that the government has been distracted by its own problems leaving many struggling to pay their bills. Greenpeace along with many others want to the government to change tack and to give more support to those in need of it.

The protests were timed to coincide with the appointment of a new party leader and prime minister.

In a rather odd incident, a policeman tried unsuccessfully and illegally to stop a news team from broadcasting at the event, providing some light entertainment for those worried about recent events and the future direction of the government. 

The protests were replicated elsewhere with those opposed to fossil fuels and other government policies continuing their programming of blocking transport routes and damaging valuable artworks. As with others the police had intervened, this time to stop the recording of parliament protests.
