Officers were on scene almost immediately. We are working with @CityPolice to get traffic moving again.
Activists are also laying on the junction north of Tower Bridge, this is causing further disruption.

We will provide further updates soon.
Tower Bridge and the junction north of the bridge, including Mansell Street, continue to be blocked by activists.

This is the moment we disrupted an attempt by Extinction Rebellion to block a road.

We predicted where activists might strike, taking immediate action.

Throughout the past seven days, we’ve responded to several disruptive protests in London.


When activists put up a pink table near to Covent Garden, several people were inside the structure, with complicated lock-on devices.

Our specialist teams worked through the night to remove people safely and methodically. Roads were open the following day.
We also responded with @CityPolice when roads around Mansion House were blocked with a complex bamboo structure.

Once again our specialists worked swiftly and safely to dismantle this structure as quickly as possible. Here's a photo as they looked to remove lock-on devices.
