The campaign group said that "over 100 fearless rebels" had been arrested, some willingly.

A huge climate change demonstration has got underway in London with protesters blocking roads and causing "criminal damage" in a deliberate attempt to get arrested.

Extinction Rebellion campaigners were ordered by the Met to confine their protest to Marble Arch after causing widespread disruption on Monday.

"We are still in this position, and still facing this crisis", she said.

The group is demanding the government declare a climate and ecological emergency, reduce greenhouse gas emissions to net zero by 2025 and create a citizens assembly of members of the public to lead on decisions to address climate change.

The culpable protesters expect to face a jury trial where they hope to further broadcast the group's goals, the organization said in a statement.

Speaking at a meditation on the eve of the protests, Dr Williams said humans had declared war on nature.

The London protest is just one of 80 across the world in 33 different countries, according to organisers.

While organisers encouraged people to set up camp in Hyde Park overnight into today, they were warned they could be breaking the law by doing so under Royal Parks legislation.

The Shell office has been painted with Extinction Rebellion's logo and messages reading "climate criminals" and "crime scene".

Police said that as of 6am there had been 113 arrests in total in connection with the demonstrations.
