The force also confirmed that 14 people have been arrested after traffic on the A206 at Crossways Boulevard in Kent was obstructed in both directions.

This comes as an Insulate Britain protester revealed she has been arrested 11 times since September 13.


Amy Pritchard said: “The plan is we are being searched and are about to be arrested.

“We were going to go on to the roundabout to obstruct it. We’ve been prevented from entering the roundabout.

“The police have not been charging us with anything or interviewing us. There’s been a political decision not to deal with us and we don’t want to be blocking roads, so it is fine.

“And we will continue until our demands are met and we are prevented from doing this.

“The decarbonisation at the speed and scale that is necessary is more important than the legal consequences for us all individually.”

A spokesman from Kent Police, said: "Fourteen people have been arrested after traffic on the A206 at Crossways Boulevard, Greenhithe, was obstructed in both directions.

"At around 8.05am on Wednesday 27 October 2021, Kent Police received a report that a group of protestors had gathered at the location and some of those involved had glued themselves to the road surface, or each other.

"Officers attended the scene within minutes and by 8.30am traffic was flowing in both directions.

"Each of the individuals was arrested on suspicion of obstructing a highway and conspiracy to commit public nuisance. They remain in custody as enquiries continue.

"Motorists are advised to expect delays and to use an alternative route if possible."
