Boris Johnson has described climate change protesters as “crusties” who live in “hemp-smelling bivouacs", following a day of action across the capital. 

Speaking at the book launch of Charles Moore’s final volume of his biography of Margaret Thatcher this evening, Mr Johnson said the former prime minister "took it [climate change] seriously long before Greta Thunberg".

Boris Johnson has hailed Margaret Thatcher as a “true feminist, green and revolutionary” who was fighting global warming long before the “nose-ringed, hemp - smelling ” Extinction Rebellion " crusties " currently occupying the streets of Westminster. The prime minister said his predecessor at 10

During his speech the prime minister said: "I am afraid that the security people didn’t want me to come along tonight because they said the road was full of uncooperative crusties and protesters littering the road.

Adding: "I hope that when we go out from this place tonight and we are waylayed by importunate nose ringed climate change protestors we remind them that she was also right about greenhouse gases."

One of Britain’s most senior police officers also criticised the actions of Extinction Rebellion protesters as they brought London to a standstill.

As footage emerged of one activist wrapping his legs around the head of an officer as he tried to arrest him, Lynne Owens, Director General of the National Crime Agency, spoke out for those on the beat, saying: “They should not have to endure this sort of behaviour.”

Meanwhile John McDonnell, Labour's shadow chancellor, expressed his “solidarity” with the group.

By lunch time crowds had gathered around Westminster to begin the planned two-week protest by blocking roads including Lambeth Bridge, where a stage and a kitchen offering vegan food were erected. 

An impromptu cricket game was held outside the Supreme Court and the streets rang with drumming, whistles and chanting, while dozens of tents were erected on the roads.

Incense was lit as yoga classes took place on Westminster Bridge where activists later erected bamboo trees.

A number of celebrities including actresses Juliet Stevenson and Ruby Wax and models Daisy Lowe and Arizona Muse joined the action.

Mark Rylance addressed crowds in the drizzling rain in St James’ Park, telling them that Greta Thunberg had inspired him to quit the  Royal Shakespeare Company over its ties to the oil industry.

"But I want people to know climate change protesters aren't 'hippies'.”

Outnumbered cops stood and watched as Extinction Rebellion activists swamped the capital on the first day of a two-week demo. The chaos came after Extinction Rebellion organisers promising a demo five times larger than the one in April, which saw 1,100 arrests and cost taxpayers £16million.

More than 100 clergy members joined one blockade, including Cannon John Halkes from Cornwall. 

“I can’t see any other way of tackling climate change. [Extinction Rebellion] have managed to completely jolt the establishment. Otherwise we are sleepwalking into a disaster,” he said.

Activists claim the protests could be as much as five times bigger than those held in April, which brought major disruption to the capital. 

It is part of an "international rebellion" around the world, with action taking place in cities including Berlin, Madrid, Amsterdam and New York.

By 9.30pm Monday there had been 280 arrests, the Metropolitan Police said.

After their response to the protests in April was widely criticised for being too lenient, officers appeared to be taking a harder line against activists.

They were filmed proactively stopping people from attaching themselves to structures whilst specialist equipment was used to remove people from scaffolding in Trafalgar Square.

Extinction Rebellion have advised activists not to co-operate, meaning that in many cases around half a dozen officers had to carry away each detainee.

The Met refused to release details of how many police had been deployed on the streets but have warned that the climate protests are taking them away from vital roles such as dealing with knife crime.

Boris Johnson’s spokesperson said that those who "significantly disrupt the lives of others" should feel the "full force of the law".

Extinction Rebellion has also advised people not to co-operate with police after their arrest or accept bail terms so that they are held for longer and another activist cannot be arrested to fill the cell.  

It is estimated that there are around 1,000 cells in London, which were almost filled in April when there were 1,100 arrests.  Despite calls for peaceful protest there were some skirmishes.

Ms Owens tweeted a video of a man in clown make up being carried away by two officers before he wrapped his legs around the neck of one. The policeman was heard apparently arresting him for assaulting an officer.

When supporters of the protest group reacted angrily to her message, Ms Owens responded: “It’s not the protest - that’s what happens in a democracy - it’s the wrapping of legs around the neck of an Officer. That isn’t just ‘having a bad day’ & we mustn’t allow it to be normalised.”

She added: “No cause can justify the assaulting of another human being.”

One of those arrested outside the treasury was 83-year-old Phil Kingston, who was also arrested in April for disrupting the Docklands Light Railway and earlier this month for being part of a group that sprayed the treasury with fake blood.

Extinction Rebellion released a video apologising to Londoners for the disruption, but added: “We have tried everything else”.
