Animal Rebellion activists superglue themselves to Amazon Prime lorry to make a point

The majority of the lorries were empty

Animal Rebellion activists have caused mayhem on roads after supergluing themselves to Muller lorries.

Traffic was halted as around 40 Animal Rebellion members climbed on top of the vehicles in protest against the dairy industry.

The group has carried out blockades at four dairies as part of its campaign for people to adopt a plant-based diet.

This particular protest took place at a Muller dairy factory depot in Droitwich, Worcs.

32 people have been arrested on suspicion of aggravated trespassing, at the time of writing.

Around £80,000 worth of damage was caused to the lorries.


The majority of those arrested remain in police custody while seven have been released on bail.

More than 40 businesses who operate out of the industrial park on Pointon Way have experienced disruption because of the activists.

Assistant Chief Constable of West Mercia Police Richard Cooper said: “We respect the right to peaceful protest but we will take proportionate action when the law is broken.

“Those who commit crimes while protesting will be dealt with fairly but robustly by West Mercia Police.”

According to workers, the majority of the lorries which were occupied were empty of any food products.

Lorry driver Manny Singh said: “I’ve been here since 7am, it’s just awful.”

Tom Price, who works for AKW Medicare near the Muller plant, said: “It’s not going to change the world, I’ve had to come to work, I was late, I was late to earn money.”

Some of the protesters superglued themselves to the roof of an Amazon Prime delivery truck.

Others had to be cut free after chaining themselves to the top of the lorry.

Some drivers jokingly offered free food to the vegan activists if they came down, with one person telling them: “I’ll take you for a three course meal, if you come down.”
