Climate protester climbs Conservative ‘battle bus’ ahead of James Cleverly campaign visit

A climate protester from Greenpeace scaled the Conservatives' election battle bus in a demonstration against the party’s environmental record on Wednesday, 26 June.

Amy Rugg-Easey used a ladder to get onto the coach as it was parked outside a kit car manufacturer in Nottinghamshire before a general election campaign visit by James Cleverly.

The activist was filmed unfurling a banner reading “clean power not Paddy Power”, appearing to refer to the election betting scandal, and stayed on top of the vehicle for 12 minutes.
