TfL seeks injunction against road-blocking protests

Transport for London has gone to the High Court to try to secure an injunction preventing named Just Stop Oil protesters from disrupting and blocking major roads in London.

The BBC reports that on Wednesday, the court agreed to a similar order stopping more than 100 members of Insulate Britain from causing disruption through such protests.

It means these protesters are prevented from blocking 34 key areas across the city for five years.

At a hearing at the same court yesterday (Thursday), TfL lawyers began a bid to secure a similar final injunction against named Just Stop Oil protesters. The BBC says Mr Justice Eyre is expected to give his ruling at a later date, after hearing arguments from TfL and some protesters who attended court.
