Climate protest group Just Stop Oil has halted traffic on the M25 this morning, declaring the London orbital motorway a “site of civil resistance” following record-breaking temperatures on Tuesday.

The group has issued a statement saying the record heatwave is “without doubt the most important moment in UK history”.

“All-time temperature records are being obliterated, thousands of people are expected to die from heatstroke and the liars and plotters who are vying to lead us are too busy fighting among themselves to even care,” the statement said.

The group accused the government of being “criminals”, who they said were “overseeing the destruction of everything that is needed for society and the state to function”.
