The climate protest group first began blocking roads yesterday with the long term goal of forcing the government to provide insulation of all social housing and retrofit all houses to make them more environmentally friendly.

Insulate Britain tweeted this morning: "You're angry. So are we. You're afraid for your job. So are we. You feel powerless. So did we.

"But sitting in the road makes @BorisJohnson sit up & take notice. So we're staying, until @10DowningStreet #getonwiththejob."

"Officers are at the scene. The road has been closed and as a result there is some traffic congestion. Motorists are asked to please avoid the area where possible."
