Activists from Extinction Rebellion stage an anti-fracking protest outside the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy in Westminster, London

Fracking protesters glue themselves to Government building

Demonstrators have chained themselves together and superglued themselves to a Government building as part of an environmental protest.

More than 60 activists descended on the headquarters of the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, in Westminster, on Monday for the demonstration, which was organised by activist group Extinction Rebellion.

Dozens of police arrived in vans to closely watch the protest as chants of "fracking is stoppable" and "keep that oil in the soil" rang out on Victoria Street. Police said one person was arrested.
