ECO-activists have returned to a key Glasgow bridge just days after chaining their necks in protest.

A group of campaigners from 'Scientist Rebellion' blocked the King George V Bridge, a key commmuter route into the city centre.

The group tweeted an image of activists in lab coats blocking the road with the caption: "Happening now: Teach-in at the south end of the George V bridge.

"Scientist Rebellion activists will debunk the 4 biggest myths pushed by #COP26"

 

It was initially thought that the group had again blocked the road, however fresh images show a large number of campaigners have instead gathered on the waterside pathway south of the Clyde.

One protester said: “We do not want to block the roads today. We understand there sometimes needs to be unnecessary disruption but we also know people have to go about their day”.

On Saturday, campaigners blocked the same bridge demanding urgent action on climate change.

At one point the group reportedly tried to glue themselves to the bridge - but failed to because it was too wet.

A police statement at the time read: "Our Police Liaison Team is engaging with protestors on King George V Bridge at Broomielaw, Glasgow.

"We have facilitated a peaceful protest, but to balance right to protest with public safety & rights of the wider community, our Protest Removal Team is safely removing protestors." 

Despite now being apparently "banned" from the centre, Scientist Rebellion took to Twitter to announce that they are returning to the bridge in Broomielaw today.

A teach-in is an informal lecture and discussion, where the group said they will "talk to the public in a public space about the hidden truths of the crisis we are in and what each of us can do to confront it."

This comes after more than 20 protestors were arrested following a day of marches and protests in the city centre.
