Hundreds of arrested eco-activists are being released without charge to rejoin protests bringing London to a standstill, as furious business leaders blasted the Met and the Mayor demanding someone 'take control'.

The demonstrations which have inconvenienced 500,000 people and cost businesses £12 million since Monday, brought further chaos to the capital's today as the protesters superglued themselves to tube trains.

Despite the police having issued a public order notice 48 hours ago demanding protesters on Waterloo Bridge disperse and regroup at their Marble Arch protest site, the bridge remains closed to traffic in both directions as the protesters there continue to be arrested.

Tonight activists said they plan to continue their roadblocks until at least next Friday.

Spokeswoman Jayne Forbes said: 'We would obviously look to go on for two weeks and if we can go on longer then even better. It depends on the rebels. We have got quite a lot of people committed to do it for the whole two weeks.'

And Robin Boardman-Pattison, 21, who earlier walked off during an interview with Sky News, said: 'We will be escalating our disruption throughout the week. The impact to the Tube system will grow.'

Londoners today blasted demonstrators for 'making things worse' by targeting public transport but the Mayor thanked them for being 'extremely co-operative'.

After 340 arrests, Scotland Yard could not confirm whether anyone had been charged with criminal offences and campaigners said London's police cells are full and 'operating on a one-in, one-out capacity', with those arrested being released without charge and rejoining the protests.

But on Wednesday evening in a massive show of force hundreds of Met Police officers marched into Parliament square to tell demonstrators they had ten minutes to get to Marble Arch or face immediate arrest.

That interviewer's face says it all. Boys younger than him have been sent into war and died to allow this privileged privately educated twit the freedom to spout.

Mr Boardman-Pattison is a leading member of Vote No Heathrow and was part of a group that vandalised the Conservative Party HQ last summer.

Boardman-Pattison, who went to fee paying Trinity School in Croydon, is also seen on his Instagram enjoying holidays to Italy and skiing.

I wonder if he flew out from Heathrow? And if he'd be prepared to give up flying away on his holidays for a cleaner world?

These protesters are stopping people getting to work. Taxi drivers in particular. Not everyone can afford that.

Idea

Brexit plans are failing;  stolen children and sex abuse enquiries have been stalled in parliament for over a decade;  nationalism on the rise;  corporate polluters and criminals continue to go unpunished, the NCS is crumbling from gov't negligence;  and on and on it goes...

Major problems have been troubling not only Britain but the rest of the world for years, and those good corporate burgers and shills of London City have continued along on their merry way, ignoring what's tumbling down around their ears..

Yet a few thousand anarchists, "eco warriors", greenies, assorted yahoos, 'evil' socialists, and those dreaded school students looking for any excuse to wag school -- the "great unwashed" of British society --  decide to hold up traffic for a couple of days..

And those self-entitled, greed-fuelled, namby pamby, corporatist snowflakes start screaming to the high heavens, demanding that the guvm'nt immediately restore order.

Yes, there is a breakdown of law and order all over the world.  It stems from the delegitimizing of our institutions, among which are dedication to truth, fairness and balance.  Laws are written, but are the assumptions of the adversarial character of law.  Those assumptions are no longer revered.

There is a great distrust of institutions, perhaps from the rumors of a deep state.

They could always bring in some Fire Brigade tankers to cool down those protesters...

Oh that's right.. They cut the funding to your emergency services as well, didn't they..

I read that there was a shortage of prison cells to put the arrested protesters. 
The cops even had to release a lorryload of eco-prisoners cos they had no space.

The amazing part was when the cops started dancing to the street music played by the protesters. Shocked Shocked Shocked 
Boogeying away & busting some moves!  
What could have been a tense standoff turned into a carnival atmosphere.
Their bosses weren't too pleased lol.
