On Monday, demonstrators vandalized the headquarters of oil company Shell, and blocked sites such as Waterloo Bridge across the River Thames, the Oxford Circus intersection and Parliament Square.

After hours of disturbance, the group was ordered by police into Marble Arch, beside Hyde Park. Cases were arrested — 113 from Tuesday morning.
