Kill the Bill protests: M32 motorway closed in Bristol after 100 demonstrators ‘sit down on road’

Around 100 people have blocked off part of a major motorway near Bristol in the latest round of Kill the Bill protests

Avon and Somerset Police said part of the M32 motorway has been closed to traffic after protesters sat on the road.

It follows several nights of direct action in and around the city prompted by the introduction of legislation that would allow for the criminalisation of any protest action deemed to be causing a public nuisance.

The force tweeted: “The group have marched onto the M32 and are currently sat on the carriageway.

“The motorway has subsequently been closed to inbound traffic at Junction 3 in the interests of safety.”
