World | incidents | 15:58, 13 November 2018 | 674

AKIPRESS.COM - Environment activists who have blockaded the UK's energy department in London say 22 people have been arrested during the protest, BBC reports.

The Met Police confirmed at least eight protestors have been detained.

The UK is seen as a leader in policies to reduce greenhouse gases and will soon be considering tougher targets.

But the protesters say research suggests the chance of keeping the global temperature rise under a 2C danger threshold is just one in 20.

The demonstrators blocked entry to the offices by lying chained together on the pavement, while some glued themselves to the doors of the department building.

Further protests are planned through the week and the demonstrators believe the public will take them seriously, as they are willing to go to jail for their cause.
