In pictures: Extinction Rebellion climate protests continue

Extinction Rebellion protesters have continued their campaign for action on climate change in the centre of London.

Protesters have disrupted traffic in Oxford Circus and Waterloo Bridge, with dozens of police officers being drafted in to help the Met cope.

Police have been trying to confine the protests to one site in London, at Marble Arch, but they have ignored the threat of arrest and continued to block other sites.
