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 there. 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 as people have had enough of this, this is stretching their resources, taking resources away from fighting other types of crime. we really heard and unusual plea from the commissioner of the metropolitan police cressida dick saying please if you want to protest there is a lawful designated site at marble arch. by remaining here you are breaking the law, the police have got an order saying that people cannot be here. but the protesters are saying they are making their point, they are determined to stay here and that is why we have got a bit of a stand—off. certainly the police are very keen to bring this to an end but equally you have the protesters saying we are here for the long hall, particularly with the long holiday weekend and as people move
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.
clearly it's been extremely disruptive over the last few days, i walked past it on oxford circle on the way to this programme, which isjust outside your circle on the way to this programme, which is just outside your offices. they are still there, still blocking off. i suppose that they are definitely attracting a lot of attention clearly, they've definitely got their message across, whether it's gone too far, and starts to become counterproductive by irritating a lot of the people, and who perhaps on their side, a lot of people share their objectives, and think that what they are talking about, and climate change is a big issue. clearly a massive issue. whether you achieve it by continuing a protest to really, you know, complete we disrupt people's easter breaks in this case it might be it's maybe very question of why think. this programme today, talking about ten yea rs this programme today, talking about ten years to really get to grips with the climate change problem, or face irreversible damage, and also the threat to civilization, or societies, as he said. a lot more people are gr
