Nine Insulate Britain activists have been jailed for blocking roads during the group’s protests.
The group were on Wednesday morning sentenced at the High Court following a contempt of court hearing for breaking an injunction.
Two activists were given three month sentences, while six were jailed for four months, and one for six months.
One of the nine jailed, Emma Smart, said after the sentencing she would be going on hunger strike.
A High Court injunction taken out by Highways England stopped the group blocking any of the country’s “strategic road network” – a series of motorways and A roads covering 4,300 miles.
The nine activists were in court after being arrested on 8 October while blocking a junction of the M25, which was covered by the injunction.
