Brexit debate interrupted as protestors get naked in the House of Commons
Just when you think things can't get any weirder
Climate change protestors interrupted a Brexit debate in parliament today to stand naked in the gallery. Approximately 11 protestors stormed parliament to reveal themselves, with slogans written across their bodies.
"Climate justice act now" and "eco collapse" were painted across the protestors' bodies in an attempt to highlight the 'elephant in the room'.
The protestors are from Extinction Rebellion, a 'socio-political movement intending to utilise nonviolent resistance in order to avert climate breakdown'.

The protestors have reportedly glued their hands and buttocks to the security glass. Police officers have attempted to forcibly remove them by using a spray to release them from the glass.
