Climate protesters dragged from top of London Underground train

Protesters from the climate campaign group Extinction Rebellion have been dragged from the roof of a Tube by angry commuters.

The men were demonstrating at Canning Town but were pulled down to the ground by people waiting on the platform after the Tube was unable to leave the station.

Elliot Laughlin, who describes himself as an independent journalist, was also pulled to the ground as he tried to film the disruption. He said he was then protected by members of the public on the platform.

The campaigners said the disruption was "necessary to highlight the emergency".
