Furious drivers attempted to force their way through Just Stop Oil eco-zealots as they blocked roads during rush hour in the capital this morning.
Members from the eco-mob were seen holding up banners while slow-walking on the South Circular Road near its junction with the A40 in west London.
They were also causing disruption on Kings Street in Hammersmith, New Kent Road in Southwark and Hanger Lane in Ealing.
The Metropolitan Police said all three of these roads were cleared in ten minutes or less, with at least one protester arrested for ‘breach of condition’.
Video footage shows one black BMW repeatedly push against the legs of activists as it refuses to be delayed by their disruption.

Elsewhere, five protesters caused ‘serious disruption’ on Vauxhall Bridge Road at 8.30am, police said.
The Met added: ‘Officers issued a section 12 condition to move off the carriageway at 08.34hrs, which was complied with. The road was cleared at 08.35hrs.’
Just Stop Oil also uploaded a video of Reverend Bill White being arrested today, claiming he was one of 34 members to take part in slow marches across the capital.
It follows a weekend of disruption which saw the group attempt to put a stop to London’s historic LGBT+ Pride Parade – leading at least five members to be charged.

Ben Plumpton, 68, of Underbank Avenue, Charlestown, Calderdale, Zosia Lewis, 22, of Melbourne Street, Newcastle-upon-Tyne, Oliver Clegg, 20, of Olney Street, Manchester, Gosse Bootsma, 25, of no fixed address and Callum Goode, 23, of Ashbourne, Derbyshire, were arrested on Saturday.
They were charged under the Public Order Act with behaviour likely to cause harassment, alarm or distress and were bailed to attend Westminster Magistrates’ Court in London tomorrow, Scotland Yard said.
Two other men, aged 19 and 22, were released on bail pending further inquiries, the force added.
All seven were arrested at about 1.25pm on Saturday, after Just Stop Oil activists disrupted the march at Down Street, Piccadilly.
They accused Coca-Cola of being ‘the world’s worst plastic polluter, accused of numerous human rights abuses’.
A spokesman said Pride had failed to address their relationship with ‘destructive industries’ that use the event to ‘pinkwash’ their reputations.
They added: ‘These partnerships embarrass the LGBTQ+ community, at a time when much of the cultural world is rejecting ties to these toxic industries.
‘We call on Pride to remember the spirit in which it was founded and to respect the memory of all those who fought and died to secure the rights we now possess, whilst taking the necessary steps to protect our community long into the future.’
Legendary LGBTQ+ rights campaigner Peter Tatchell said: ‘Climate destruction is destroying communities, jobs, homes and lives across the world, especially in poorer countries.
‘Our community must not collude with environment, species and climate destroying companies.’
