The High Court has this afternoon granted an urgent interim injunction to TfL against Persons Unknown and certain named Defendants who have previously been arrested at Insulate Britain protests. The injunction granted by Mrs Justice May (following an application presented by Andrew Fraser-Urquhart QC and Charles Forrest) prevents, among other things, blocking the highway at 14 locations which are particularly important to the TfL Road Network such as the Blackwall Tunnel,Tower Bridge and Park Lane.

In addition to those protests on National Highways Ltd's strategic roads, this follows  Insulate Britain's protests this morning at the Old Street Roundabout where protesters glued themselves to the highway and their protests on 4 October at the Blackwall Tunnel, Wandsworth Bridge, Arnos Grove, and Hanger Lane. All the protests have attracted significant media coverage.

Andrew Fraser-Urquhart QC and Charles Forrest represented the successful applicants, Transport for London, instructed by Abbey Ameen, Mark McConochie, and Andrea Clarke of TfL.
