Extinction Rebellion bees target Lib Dems

An Extinction Rebellion protester dressed as a bee appeared to have glued himself to the windscreen of the Liberal Democrat battle bus this morning.

He was joined by other climate protesters in South London who also donned jackets with horizontal black and yellow stripes and fake wings to swarm the campaign vehicle.

Lib Dem activists closed ranks around the bus brandishing party placards as one man dressed as a bee moved between them while cheerily making buzzing sounds.
