It's been a week and a half since Insulate Britain first held a sit-down protest on the M25, and there doesn't appear to be a sign of them letting up.

On five separate occasions from September 13-21 the group held up traffic at various points along the M25.

They've become a national talking point, with hundreds having been arrested as a result

Confrontations between drivers and protestors have also been common, with many angered by being delayed in their journeys.

There has also been controversy after a woman was left partially paralysed when her son, who was driving her to hospital, got stuck in traffic caused by an Insulate Britain protest.

An injunction was taken out against the group in the High Court this week, but they have no plans to stop.

The question might still be there for many people about what they group are actually protesting for.

Here's a breakdown of what it is.

Who are Insulate Britain and what are they protesting?

Insulate Britain are a campaign group that have their aims linked to climate change.

On their website, it states that improving “the quality of our homes is fundamental to achieve the British Government’s climate change, fuel poverty and water reduction targets”.

Their aims are to have the UK government take responsibility for the insulation of all UK social housing by 2025.

They would also like for the government to produce a legally-binding national plan within four months to fully fund and take responsibility for a low-energy and low-carbon retrofit of all homes by 2030.

A petition with their aims is currently up with almost 4,000 signatures.

Why did Insulate Britain protest on the M25?

Stunts such as sitting on the M25 have caused the group to become a national talking point, especially on social media.

Their cause has gained public attention, even if their list of detractors has increaesd along with it.

The Insulate Britain Twitter account put out a post on their Twitter giving reason for their protest back on September 13.

“We are demanding the government and @BorisJohnson create hundreds of thousands of jobs, lower our emissions, and save lives,” it read.
