The group is demanding government action on home insulation, tweeting: "#InsulateBritain are back. @BorisJohnson can you hear us yet?"

The demonstrators targeted Junction 23 for South Mimms in Hertfordshire, as well as the main carriageway from Junction 8 at Reigate to Junction 9 at Leatherhead, both in Surrey.

Local news media reported that Princes Road in Dartford, Kent, is partially blocked with queuing traffic due to a demonstration on the roundabout at Junction 1B of the motorway, causing congestion on the approach to the busy Dartford Crossing.

One Twitter user, Phillip Marvel, said the protesters were "at it again" adding: "Children stuck on school buses, ambulances can't get through. This is not helping their cause."
