Breaking News ! A police chief has hit out at climate change protesters for going floppy when they face arrest and told them to "behave like adults”. Sir Steve House said tactics used by Extinction Rebellion (XR) are “a flipping nuisance” and a “complete pain in the neck”. The Metropolitan Police Deputy Commissioner told the London Assembly Police and Crime Committee some demonstrators go limp when officers try and detain them resulting in officers having to carry them off instead. He told the room: “We have asked them to stop being floppy. It might seem like a silly thing to say, but when we arrest them and pick them up they go all floppy, which is why you see four or five officers carrying them away.

These were for alleged offences including obstructing the highway, criminal damage and breaching the legal conditions set on the demonstration. Read more XR’s messages matter — their silly stunts don’t Sir Steve went on: “The problem with them going floppy and four officers carrying them away is that it looks to the general public like the police are overreacting here. “We’re not making them go floppy – they’re just being a nuisance."
