Extinction Rebellion activists end London protests

Ten days of protests, blockades and disruption across London has come to a conclusion as Extinction Rebellion ended its action in the UK capital.

Hundreds of activists met in Hyde Park earlier for a "closing ceremony".

More than 1,100 people have been arrested since campaigners first blocked traffic on 15 April.

On the final day of action, protesters blocked roads, climbed on a train and glued themselves together in London's financial district.

On Thursday evening, climate change campaigners sat on the grass next to Speaker's Corner - widely considered London's home of free speech - singing and listening to musicians.

Transport for London said all roads are open around Marble Arch.
