CLIMATE PROTESTS Extinction Rebellion protesters block BBC headquarters in London


Climate-change protesters from the Extinction Rebellion group blocked the entrance to the BBC headquarters in London, calling on the broadcaster to “tell the full truth” in its coverage of the environment.

Extinction Rebellion is using two weeks of civil disobedience to pressure governments to do more to combat greenhouse gas emissions and on Thursday a protester forced a jet to turn around at London City Airport.

Gathering outside the building in central London, the group called “on the BBC to meet its crucial moral duty to tell the full truth on the climate and ecological emergency.”

A BBC spokeswoman said she could not comment on security matters.
