Published
Extinction Rebellion protesters glued themselves to the Speaker's Chair in the House of Commons after masquerading as tourists to get inside the building.

Five demonstrators were pictured in the chamber demanding a citizens' assembly to discuss the climate crisis. They held banners which read 'let the people decide' and 'citizens' assembly now'.

They are understood to have entered the Commons on an official tour of the building before breaking away from their group to stage the protest.
