Extinction Rebellion activists block road in central London on the final day of protests

Extinction Rebellion activists blocked a road in the City of London earlier today (April 25) on the final day of protests across the British capital.

Footage shows protesters holding a placard with a message reading ''Non violent'' at the intersection of Poultry and Queen Victoria Street.

Earlier today, protesters also glued themselves to the entrance of the London Stock Exchange.

More than 1,000 people have been arrested since the climate change protests started a week ago.

The protests organised by the climate change activist group, will end with a closing ceremony at 18:00BST today at Speaker's Corner, Hyde Park.
