The Extinction Rebellion group of climate change campaigners will hold a protest at London’s Heathrow Airport on Friday, the Press Association, a news agency, reported on Thursday, quoting a spokesman for the group.

Extinction Rebellion has escalated its protests in recent weeks, blocking locations in central London and staging a semi-nude protest in parliament. At least 420 people have been arrested so far this week.

A spokeswoman for Heathrow said the airport was working with authorities to address any threat of protests which could disrupt the airport.

Extinction Rebellion sent a message to media titled “Statement on the Extinction Rebellion Heathrow Action Tomorrow” but the body of the message did not provide any details.
