As thousands of holidaymakers made their way to the airport on Friday morning, they were met with long tailbacks after the protesters spread banners across arterial routes.

Police have drafted in cutting equipment to saw through the chains which the protesters have used to lock themselves to each other and concrete blocks covered with what appears to be tubing.

Helmets were placed on the protesters and a sheet held up blocking their view as specialist equipment was used to hammer through the chains.

It is believed the group are taking action as part of #BlackAugust, a campaign to raise awareness of racism.
