The protest is in solidarity with Extinction Rebellion and at what they say is a lack of support for cycling by the Government including in this week's budget.

AFP reporters saw uniformed officers carry or escort around 100 demonstrators from outside its main entrance.

Police were picking up protesters and carrying them away, but some had glued themselves to the floor and to each other.

More protesters were camped with dozens of tents in nearby St James's Park.

"I chose to come and join them because I think they have a just cause", pensioner Steve Phillips said as around a hundred campaigners rallied in the presence of dozens of police.

Airport and Aer Lingus airline officials said that a morning flight to Dublin had to be delayed by almost two hours after a ticketed passenger got up to make a speech about the climate as the plane prepared to take off.

A spokesman for the airport said: "We can confirm that a number of protesters have arrived at London City Airport".

"Our policing plan is aimed at preventing criminal activity which poses a significant safety and security risk to the airport, and the thousands of passengers using it", Metropolitan Police Deputy Assistant Commissioner Laurence Taylor said in a statement.

A partially blind climate activist was busted Thursday afternoon at a London airport for clambering atop a British Airways plane, the Evening Standard reported.

Stanley Johnson said: "I wear that badge with pride".

In an interview with the BBC's Andrew Neil, Extinction Rebellion spokesperson Zion Lights defended the organisation's warning that billions of people would die in a relatively short time period due to global climate change or its founder's suggestion that children would die in the next 10-20 years.

The group's growing list of prominent supporters include actress Emma Thompson and the Swedish teen climate activist Greta Thunberg. Extinction Rebellion identified the activist as a former Paralympic cyclist.

"If you want to protest, you can go to the middle of Trafalgar Square", Dick said.

Deputy assistant commissioner Taylor said the protests had now been mostly contained to the picturesque central London square.

"Targeting an airport and inconveniencing travellers in this way is wholly unacceptable and irresponsible", he continued.

Britain has set itself the target of 2050.
