Extinction Rebellion activists fired smoke flares and poured black paint outside the Home Office today.
A group of the protesters were surrounded by police as they held placards and lay on the ground next to the office building.
The eco-fanatics poured the black paint out of plastic buckets with the words “End Coal” written on the side.
Two of the protesters appear to have attached themselves to each other with a large hose.

Both lit torches and screamed as they sat near the entrance to the Home Office.
The protest comes two weeks after Extinction Rebellion (XR) said it would abandon disruptive protests and instead prioritize dialogue.
Representatives for the group said earlier this month they would “priority participation over arrest and ties to roadblocks.”
XR said today’s stunt was a protest at Cumbria’s newly approved coal mine, which was given the green light by Leveling Up, Housing and Communities Secretary Michael Gove last month.
The group said online: “Amid the climate and environmental emergency, this will be the UK’s first new deep coal mine in 30 years. It’s time for #EndCoal.
“2022 saw record global greenhouse gas emissions, but the government would rather put their own profits ahead of people’s lives.
“Providing unstable jobs in the coal sector during a climate crisis is not fair. The opening of a coal mine in a region of the UK already disproportionately affected by the climate crisis, with increasing flooding and unprecedented rainfall, will cost lives.”
