Dressed as UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson, an activist from Extinction Rebellion (XR) climbed up on the side of the Big Ben clock in London on Friday to demand more action on climate change.
Footage shows the protester free scaling the tower and walking on the scaffolding. The man hung a rainbow-coloured banner with the XR logo that read "No pride on a dead planet."
According to reports, the police closed the local underground station and Westminster Bridge while attending to the scene. The activist was subsequently brought to the ground by the authorities at around 19:00 local time (18:00 GMT).
