Priti Patel has condemned Extinction Rebellion (XR) for an “attack on democracy” after the group blockaded major printing presses in a move to stop a range of papers reaching shops on Saturday.

More than 100 protesters used vehicles and bamboo lock-ons to block roads outside the printing works at Broxbourne, Hertfordshire, and Knowsley, near Liverpool. By Saturday morning, police said some 63 people had been arrested.
