Thousands of people have said they will join a week of protests across London organised by eco-activist group Extinction Rebellion.

Protesters smashed windows and sprayed graffiti on London's Shell HQ. Revolving doors were shattered after protesters attempted to glue themselves to doors on the day of "peaceful action."

Earlier protesters blocked several major road junctions, causing traffic in some parts of the capital to grind to a halt.

Police confirmed that they were dealing with an incident in Lambeth, and that three males had been arrested.

Tweets from the Extinction Rebellion London account said that protesters were gluing themselves to the doors, pouring oil and smashing windows. "This is the least we can do," they said.

LBC's Rachael Venables said that protesters at Oxford Circus seemed to be throwing a party.

On Monday morning protesters took control of Waterloo Bridge, with plans to turn the area into a garden.

They wrote online: "We have taken Waterloo Bridge!"

Just before 10:30 am hundreds of demonstrators blocked the bridge, and started to place 50 trees and a skateboard ramp.

In London, protesters are seeking to block roads at four key sites in the capital.

Additional protests are expected to take place at Oxford Circus, Parliament Square and Marble Arch.
