A climate change protester has been arrested on board an Aer Lingus flight bound for Dublin, at London City Airport.

The plane, which was about to take off, had to return to the terminal as a result of the disruption.

London City Airport insists it's "fully operational" despite demonstrations by members of Extinction Rebellion.

This is the moment the man stood up on the flight:

It comes as hundreds of protesters continue their attempt to shut down London City Airport in a three-day “Hong Kong-style occupation of the terminal building.”

A number of people have been arrested in the terminal building, where demonstrators have glued themselves to the floor.

A major security operation has been launched since the occupation began at 9am this morning.

Today marks the fourth day the global Extinction Rebellion protests.
