SHAMELESS M25 eco-warriors have offered their “sympathy” to a woman who was paralyzed by a stroke while sitting in traffic they did – as they blocked the road again.
The mother’s son, who was taking her to the hospital, said he was forced to “watch his mother slip” – with traffic backed for miles as protesters again created chaos .
It is the fourth time climate crisis warriors have caused travel chaos around London’s orbital and surrounding motorways – with dire consequences for people stuck in traffic.
Hertfordshire Police confirmed that 29 people had been arrested this morning alone following the M25 blockage.
Chris, whose mother is now paralyzed after being forced to sit up late, told LBC: “I was stuck in traffic for about six hours. I was doing a mission of mercy to help my mother.”
He took it upon himself to drive his mother to him, with ambulance delays and severe delays due to traffic having an on-site doctor.
But he was stuck on the motorway for six hours after Insulate Britain protesters blocked the road.
He said: “I was looking at her slips with my mother for six hours, and I couldn’t do anything.”
“When we took him to the hospital, the doctors said that if we had gotten him within 90 minutes, his symptoms, his recovery would have been minimal.”
And this morning on Good Morning Britain, former Green Party leader Natalie Bennett said: “Of course I have the greatest sympathy for Chris and his mother.
“And I wish him and his mother all the best.”
But Richard Madley refuted: “Big deal, it’s not helping them, is it?
“She’s paralyzed. Because she was stuck in traffic for six hours, when she should have gone to the hospital for a blood thinner, and you give your sympathies?
“I don’t think they want your sympathy.”
And LBC’s Nick Ferrari even cursed the eco-warriors, addressing Insulet Britain’s Liam Norton: “You just heard a caller explain how he took his mother for six hours before his eyes to effectively drain Looked away. Don’t lecture me on an emotional topic.
“I’m talking to you about the agony of Chris’ mother, whom you brought up with your partners. That woman effectively dying before her son’s eyes is down to you and your allies.
“When will you stop with these lame apologies and really accept that this is not the way to protest.”
Today, eco-campaigners have resumed their much-awaited M25 protest and blamed the police for not reducing the speed of traffic.
And they have now blocked the entrance to A1 as well.
Insulate Britain activists began their protest just after 8 a.m. on Monday as the morning rush hour was underway.
LBC’s Rachel Venables said about 15 protesters in orange bibs blocked the carriageway at Slip Road, drivers beeped their horns and traffic was expected to begin to back up.
Police reached the spot and started arresting them.
An angry driver told workers: “Why do you think this is the right thing to do?
“I know what you’re fighting for, I totally agree, it’s a really cool idea, but it’s not the way to do it.
“You’re creating more pollution with all these cars sitting here, just doing f*** everything.
“You’ve got people hating you. Go and protest London, go downing Street.”
The group caused serious disruption as its activists blocked portions of a busy motorway throughout the past week.
Hertfordshire Police confirmed that 29 people had been arrested this morning following the protests.
The force said: “Police were called today (Monday 20 September) at 8.12 a.m. near Junction 18 (Chorleywood) of the M25 for reports of protesters, many of whom were clinging to the carriageway. 13 people have been arrested.” The road has been closed. Partially reopened.
“Police were also called at 8.15 a.m. to report protesters near Junction 4 (Stanborough Interchange) of the A1M. 16 people have been arrested, most of them clinging to the carriageway. A bend is in place.”
Chief Superintendent Nick Cavani said: “Protesters have made it clear they want to continue to cause disruption. Not only is deliberately blocking a highway incredibly dangerous, it also affects thousands of members of the public. which are consequently stuck in delay.
“We have strong plans in place to minimize any disruption and allow us to make arrests as quickly as possible. This includes, but is not limited to, surveillance areas that have been identified as potential conflict targets.
“Officers were on the scene within minutes of being alerted to protest activity, which allowed us to impose diversions to decongest traffic and make several arrests. All the protesters involved in this morning’s protest have been arrested and will be taken into custody.
“We are working closely with other affected forces to ensure that any further activity is dealt with effectively and efficiently.
“I understand and appreciate the disappointment at the considerable delay and inconvenience caused as a result of the protest.
“We have now made a total of 76 arrests in connection with protest activity in Hertfordshire over the past week. Please rest assured that a full investigation is underway and we are in the process of gathering evidence to ensure that lawbreakers are brought to justice. be brought.
