Furious drivers have clashed with the demonstrators who glued themselves to the road and caused traffic chaos.

Protestors ignored calls from the police this morning and jumped the barrier from the hard shoulder before running in front of traffic.

Officers attempted to haul them off the carriageway as motorists slowed down but they managed to sprawl across the lane and completely block both sides of the M25 near Woking.

The activists were eventually removed from the anti-clockwise carriageway by cops in front of the huge tailbacks on the busy motorway.

Officers are still working to remove the protesters from the clockwise side of the road.

A Surrey Police spokesman said: “We are currently in attendance between junctions 9 and 10 of the M25 dealing with a protest which was reported just after 8am today.


“A number of protesters from Insulate Britain are on the carriageways in both the clockwise and anti-clockwise directions.

“We have already cleared the anti-clockwise carriageway and are dealing with the other side currently.

“We would advise motorists to avoid the area if possible. We will keep you updated.”
