Live updates as Extinction Rebellion protesters stage march through Cardiff

Extinction Rebellion protesters are marching through Cardiff city centre at the end of a week-long campaign in the city.

They say the focus will be on the wider issues of climate and “ecological justice”.

The march, from City Hall to the Senedd, has been organised by a  new coalition of campaigners and organisations from across south Wales called Justice Now.

Earlier today, protesters blockaded two of News Corporation’s major printing presses to stop a range of papers reaching newsstands.

More than 100 protesters used vehicles and bamboo lock-ons to block roads outside the Newsprinters printing works at Broxbourne, Hertfordshire, and Knowsley, near Liverpool on Friday.

The presses print the Rupert Murdoch-owned News Corp’s titles including The Sun, The Times, The Sun on Sunday and The Sunday Times, as well as The Daily Telegraph and Sunday Telegraph, the Daily Mail and Mail on Sunday, and the London Evening Standard.

In Cardiff this week protests have been held outside the BBC building in Central Square and at an incinerator plant in Splott.
