‘Get the cuffs on him… you’ll need four pairs’: Police march giant Extinction Rebellion OCTOPUS to Trafalgar Square (VIDEO)
Streets around Westminster in London were made a lot safer on Wednesday thanks to police, after they kettled a huge inflatable Octopus, that had joined the Extinction Rebellion (XR) protests, and marched it to Trafalgar Square.
Hilarious footage of the giant eight-tentacled sea creature, operated by XR activists, was posted on social media by journalist Liam O’Hare. It shows a number of London Metropolitan Police officers slowly marshalling the naughty pink octopus backwards down Whitehall.
