A MOB of Insulate Britain eco-zealots tried to launch ANOTHER day of protests today – but cops swooped just in time.
A group of six demonstrators brazenly stormed down to a roundabout on the M25 near junction 23 during rush hour this morning.
But police were one step ahead of the gormless mob, as cops swiftly intervened to stop the bunch from gluing themselves directly onto the tarmac.
The move would have wreaked havoc on countless hard-working Brits trying to get on with their days.
But the banner-clutching fanatics did use the harmful chemical to stick themselves to the pavement.
The Sun last week exclusively revealed that the idiot protestors have been using superglue made from a concoction of chemicals harmful to human health and the environment.
Today's mob were swiftly carted away from the scene by cops, with a Herts Police spokesperson stating: "Police were called at 7.45am today (Tuesday 2 November) to reports of protestors near junction 23 (Bignells Corner) of the M25.
"Officers are at the scene and working to resolve the disruption as quickly as possible. Several people have been arrested."
Jess, one of the protesters who was stopped by police, said they were unable to get onto the road today.
She told LBC: "Sadly, we didn't manage to make it onto the road. The police were here as we arrived, so we are now just sat here on the side of the road."
Asked what her plan was next, Jess replied: "This officer has arrested me already, I am sat here and he's holding me, so I'll just be here and then I will be arrested."
It comes after Insulate Britain launched a week of major chaos coinciding with the kids' half term break.
A protest last Wednesday saw a raging driver squirt INK in the faces of Insulate Britain eco-zealots as two mobs of protesters blocked traffic.
The raging commuter moved along a row of expressionless demonstrators while clutching a bottle full of blue liquid.
He squeezed it over their faces while shouting "it's ink" as the mob refused to budge.
And on Monday, one eco-idiot glued his own face to the road in a bizarre demonstration, before admitting: "It wasn't one of my better moves".
Matthew Tulley opted to superglue his own head directly onto the tarmac close to Liverpool Street Station.
But, speaking as scissors were used to cut of his hair, Matthew admitted the bizarre move might not have been his brightest idea.
Speaking directly from one of the barricades, Matthew told how he wanted to take "extreme action".
He told the Mirror: "They had to cut my hair by my temple because my face was totally glued. But now I've worked most of that off. But my hair is still glued."
The group claimed the only way to tackle the issue is through a "wartime style national effort" involving "shared sacrifice".
Insulate Britain earlier promised to "suspend its campaign of civil resistance" until October 25.
In an open letter to Boris Johnson, the group quoted the PM's hero Winston Churchill before writing: "Insulate Britain would like to take this opportunity to profoundly acknowledge the disruption caused over the past five weeks.
"We cannot imagine undertaking such acts in normal circumstances.
"But the dire reality of our situation has to be faced."
Over a month after the first roadblocks brought chaos to the motorways, officials are set to ask judges to take action.
Ministers have reportedly been furious that police are arresting the zealots – before releasing them just hours later.
But final details are now being added to legal papers which could see faster justice for those who flout High Court injunctions not to block roads.
And Priti Patel has announced that police will be given the power to arrest repeat climate protesters before they glue themselves to the tarmac.
The group has faced plenty of accusations about hypocrisy – and just days ago, Norton himself admitted he "doesn't care" about insulation.
The Sun exclusively revealed that Norton doesn't even insulate his own home.
And quizzed about his decision not to by talkRADIO presenter Cristo Foufas, Norton instantly replied: "Because I'm a hypocrite."
He then added: "I'm terrible aren't I."
Baffled by the response, Cristo pressed him further, asking: "Do you understand why people will think, well, this guy doesn't care about insulation, he only cares about causing disruption and trying to make a name for himself?"
"Yeah, they're right," Norton said.
"I don't particularly care about insulation."
