but a bit like what happened earlier at oxford circus, what police have done is formed a circle around the protesters on the bridge to try and keep the numbers contained. what we haven't seen yet is them move in like at oxford circus, to try to ta ke like at oxford circus, to try to take people away. what protesters have been doing is lying on the ground, so the police are forced to carry them away from here. but the message from the police is people have had enough of this. this is stretching their resources, it's taking resources away from fighting other types of crime, and we really heard that usual plea from the commission at the metropolitan police saying please, if you want to protest, there is a lawful designated site. that is at marble arch. by remaining here, you are breaking the law, the police have gotan breaking the law, the police have got an order saying that people cannot be here. but the protesters are saying well, they are making their point, they are determined to stay here, and that's what we've got a bit ofa stay here, and that's what we've got a bit of a standoff.
oxford circus and marble arch are also blocked. and in kings cross, euston road is down to two lanes outside st pancras station and down to one lane at the junction with pentonville road for works. good morning. there may be a little bit of mistiness out there this morning. it's not widespread but you may get a patch or two to the west and south of london, anywhere really, but it will lift to a day of warm sunshine. day by day this week, the temperature is steadily rising, thanks to the high pressure. a gentle easterly, south—easterly breezes so perhaps a little bit cooler out towards the essex coast. elsewhere, though, it is starting to feel pretty warm. some cloud bubbling up into the afternoon and temperatures reaching 20 celsius in central london. like i said, further towards the east, it's likely to feel a little cooler. now, overnight tonight, again, clear skies, temperatures not dropping too far thanks to the heat generated during the day. so not as cold as the last couple of nights. 7—8 celsius, the minimum temperature.
