A video shows police dragging a protestor from a popular restaurant in Weymouth after she approached Sir David Attenborough who was said to be dining inside. Scientist Emma Smart claims she had plans to speak to the well-known climate activist but was removed from the premises by police and arrested for failing to leave when requested and failing to comply with officers on the scene.

Emma Smart, who has taken arms with Extinction Rebellion previously and Insulate Britain, said: “The Catch is a symbol of excess and inequality in today’s world, Weymouth has average wages amongst the lowest in The UK and is at huge risk of sea level rises, yet this restaurant continues business as usual amongst the worst cost-of-living crisis many will ever experience.”
