  • More than 750 arrested after week of climate change protests

Members of the group said they were aware that some arrested demonstrators had been taken outside of London due to a lack of custody space.

Scotland Yard has warned protesters the force had "strong plans" in place with a significant number of officers ready to respond.

The group staged a series of protests - each of around five minutes in duration - between 8am and 9am in the hope of stopping what they said was the "extinction of nature and of people".

"If we don't do something now it's going to have a catastrophic effect", said 23-year-old media student Fflur Harman, who travelled from central England and spent the night at one central London protest site.

"The sufferers will be the communities in the local boroughs where officers are being taken from the community areas and the funding and money has to be found to deal with what we are doing".

In a statement senior officers admitted the demonstration was putting a "strain" on the force resulting in officers in the city's boroughs being required to work 12-hour shifts, with rest days cancelled and the Violent Crime Task Force having had all leave cancelled.

Routes are also blocked around Waterloo Bridge, Parliament Square and Marble Arch, and Home Secretary Sajid Javid has urged police to use the "full force of the law".

But they came on the back of a "damning" report on the state of the New Zealand environment, released by the government this week.

A further three people who were charged by British Transport Police appeared in court on Thursday morning.

The police reiterated that protests were only allowed to continue at Marble Arch, but have not said if or how they will clear the hundreds of demonstrators from other locations.

Actress Dame Emma Thompson delivered her "love poem to the Earth" from a stage aboard the boat before hi-vis jacketed officers formed two concentric rings around the structure and shepherded protestors away through the course of this afternoon.

The group Extinction Rebellion is calling for a week of civil disobedience against what it says is the failure to tackle the causes of climate change.
