Eco mob cause rush hour chaos after clambering on top of Eddie Stobart fuel tanker at busy roundabout in West London

  •  Just Stop Oil have this morning targeted an Eddie Stobart fuel tanker lorry
  • Yesterday Extinction Rebellion activists marched down Constitution Hill
  • Others glued themselves to Dept for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy

Eco zealots have invaded a fuel tanker lorry on one of London’s busiest roundabouts – causing rush hour chaos.

The Just Stop Oil protest happened in Chiswick, ahead of a busy weekend for travel for Easter.

The protest was captured on traffic cameras on the Chiswick roundabout just after 8.30am

Pictures show the tanker is an Eddie Stobart vehicle and at least four people sat on top of it.

Yesterday dozens of Extinction Rebellion activists glued their hands to the London HQ of Shell while hundreds marched on Buckingham Palace.  

Video shared by XR showed two activists with their hands down on a reception desk with the logo of oil giant Shell visible in the background. Other pictures show three people holding XR signs saying: ‘Insiders wanted’.

Sharing the footage on their Twitter page, XR said: ‘Ordinary people have glued to the reception Shell HQ in London as protestors fill the lobby and surround the building.’

In the video, one of the protestors says: ‘We are here to talk to HR, because we feel like there is not much point in talking to people at a corporation like this because those people clearly have not got any idea what is going on.’

A security guard then arrives and asks if they have glued themselves to the desk, with the protestor replying: ‘We have, yes.’

Outside, one hundred people from XR held up a placard with the name of an individual Shell employee and the words ‘Please Join Us’, while activists also handed out flyers to staff urging them to ‘switch to the right side of history, before Shell turns toxic on your CV’.

Another group positioned a fireman’s trampoline below the office windows bearing the message: ‘Jump Ship’. 

While the protests took place in and outside the Shell building, another group who said they were scientists, superglued themselves to an entrance of the nearby Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy as they continue to call for immediate action on climate change. 

Hundreds of demonstrators also walked along Constitution Hill towards the Queen’s official London residence – although she is currently living at Windsor Castle – waving flags and holding a large banner saying: ‘End fossil fuels now’.
