Ministers and MPs criticise protesters for targeting printing presses

Protesters from Extinction Rebellion (XR) have blockaded two of News Corporation’s major printing presses to stop a range of papers reaching newsstands on Saturday. More than 100 protesters used vehicles and bamboo lock-ons to block roads outside the Newsprinters printing works at Broxbourne, Hertfordshire, and Knowsley, near Liverpool on Friday. By Saturday morning, police said some 63 people had been arrested.
