UK: Climate change protestors from the Extinction Rebellion group have been arrested for blockading a ready-mixed concrete plant operated by London Concrete at Bow in London. Concrete from the plant is being used to supply a major road tunnel project at Silvertown beneath the River Thames, according to Reuters. Extinction Rebellion blamed concrete production for being a major source of CO2 emissions and it also has concerns about dust pollution. Seven people were arrested by the Metropolitan Police for aggravated trespass. London Concrete is part of LafargeHolcim Group. It operates 12 concrete plants in London.
