Following a hearing in front of Lavender J, the nationwide injunction granted by Linden J on 25 October 2021 against persons unknown who are the blocking, slowing down, obstructing or otherwise interfering with the flow of traffic onto or off or along the Strategic Road Network (‘SRN’) and against 122 named parties is going to remain in force until at least 11 November 2021. 

One of the factors behind the application in the first place was UN Climate Change Conference (COP 26), which is scheduled to occur between 31 October – 12 November 2021. Today’s decision will help ensure that Insulate Britain cannot carry out further highly disruptive protests on the SRN during the majority of COP 26.

Saira Kabir Sheikh QC and Charles Merrett acted on behalf of National Highways.
