Climate change protesters halt council budget meeting

Climate change protesters halted a council meeting after they held a mock trial in the council chamber.

Members of Extinction Rebellion asked Gloucestershire County Council if it would allocate 10% of its budget to fund "climate emergency action".

When members declined they "charged" the authority with "criminal negligence" before another protester, dressed as a judge, found them "guilty".

The council said it had a "really good track record" on climate change.
