Furious driver snatches Insulate Britain signs as cops free protesters chained together.

Police officers had to cut through bike locks chaining Insulate Britain protesters together at the neck, while an angry motorist rips the group's signs away.

TWO motorways were plunged into chaos by a mob of eco-warriors this morning after they were banned from the M25.

Activists from Insulate Britain stormed the M4 and glued themselves to the M1 during rush hour before a frustrated driver ripped a sign from their hands and lobbed it into some bushes.

They targeted Junction 3 of the M4 near Heathrow Airport and the M1 at Junction 1 at Brent Cross, north London.

Around 30 shameless hi-vis-wearing environmentalists joined the demonstration in their tenth protest in a matter of weeks.

Some chained themselves together as they brandished banners in the middle of the road, while others glued themselves to the surface and even each other.

The troop included eight people released from police custody on Thursday after blocking the M25, and others who were arrested earlier this week.

Drivers stuck in the hold-up quickly lost patience, with one seen ripping signs away from Insulate Britain protestors.

Other motorists sounded their horns in an attempt to get them to budge.

The climate group were in position for around 15 minutes before police started dragging them away.
