Police have been called to London City Airport early this morning as protesters gained access to the runway, which is still causing major disruption for flights.
The Met reports:
There are currently nine protestors on the runway at the airport. They have erected a tripod and have locked themselves together.
Officers are currently on scene and are negotiating with them. We are awaiting the arrival of specialist resources that are able to ‘unlock’ the protestors.
No arrests have been made at this stage.
People flying out of London City Airport are advised to expect delays as police continue to monitor the situation.
