    Home Secretary Sajid Javid has urged police to use ‘the full force of the law’ against illegal Extinction Rebellion climate change protesters as they enter a fifth day.  More than 500 protesters were arrested last night as activists continued to ignore orders to leave roadblocks at Waterloo Bridge, Oxford Circus and Parliament Square.Organiser said action would be escalated to include Heathrow Airport on Good Friday, with around 500,000 people expected to fly out for Easter breaks over the bank holiday weekend.Mr Javid released a statement about the protests after meeting police chiefs.’Over recent days, commuters trying to earn a living have been unable to travel to work and businesses have been disrupted,’ he said. ‘Emergency vehicles have faced difficulties navigating the road networks and the demonstrations have put added pressure on police officers whose job it is to solve crimes and protect the public.’Let me be clear: I totally condemn any protesters who are stepping outside the boundaries of the law. They have no right to cause misery for the millions of people who are trying to lead their daily lives. Unlawful behaviour will not be tolerated.’ Scotland Yard has warned protesters the force had ‘strong plans’ in place with a significant number of officers ready to respond.Heathrow said it is ‘working with the authorities’, while Metropolitan Police Assistant Commissioner Nick Ephgrave said: ‘Protesters can expect a robust police response. We are determined to keep the airport operating.’Mayor of London Sadiq Khan said he was ‘extremely concerned’ about the possible disruption.’This is extremely dangerous, illegal and is putting an unacceptable toll on our police force and our city,’ he said. More than 1,000 officers have been deployed daily to deal with the protest.Some have been asked to work 12-hour shifts, while rest days and leave has been cancelled.The Met said the protests are putting a strain on policing in the capital with officers diverted away from their ‘core local duties’. After a briefing from Met Commissioner Cressida Dick, the Home Secretary said: ‘I totally condemn any protesters who are stepping outside the boundaries of the law’.’They have no right to cause misery for the millions of people who are trying to lead their daily lives. Unlawful behaviour will not be tolerated.
