She addressed the Police Chiefs Conference as follows: “I urge you all to fulfill your civic responsibilities by policing protesters.

“In recent months and years, confidence in the police’s ability to take action against radicals, road blockers, vandals, militants, and extremists has eroded.

The condition of the officer who was hurt between junctions 26 (Waltham Abbey) and 27 were not disclosed by Essex Police (Theydon).

Chief Constable of the Essex Police, BJ Harrington, stated that the protests “endanger lives” and that “someone will be injured.”

Four suspects have been arrested on a charge of knowingly or recklessly producing a public nuisance, and one suspect has been arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to commit the same offense.

All are still in custody, according to the police.

The police stated: “This takes the overall number of arrests in Surrey to 16 up to this point.

Officers are conducting proactive patrols of the remainder of the M25, as they have all week.

She spoke to the campaigners and stated: “I get their argument, but at this point when it’s causing accidents, it’s becoming ridiculous.

It’s ridiculous that police officers must suddenly watch the M25 when they have far more severe offenses to investigate. I do not concur with it.”
