Activists from Extinction Rebellion have entered the House of Commons, glueing themselves around the speaker’s chair.

After surrounding the chair, the protesters held up banners and said they read out a speech demanding a citizen’s assembly on climate issues, an extra-governmental democratic body that makes policy recommendations.
