The video also appeared to show police responding to chants of "We love you" from supporters of Extinction Rebellion, the group which organised the protests.

Protesters stood by the tunnel that leads to Terminals 2 and 3 at the airport, but all roads around the roundabout remained open.

After one of the protest organisers said that they would facilitate the police in a peaceful way, Thompson remarked "I would like to say though to the police, Nanny McPhee is up here and I have got my stick with me".

"The question really is can we arrest our way out of this issue, given there are several thousand people in London who are willing to be arrested", Metropolitan Police Assistant Commissioner Nick Ephgrave said.

A group of demonstrators have staged a climate change protest at Heathrow Airport.

Ian Payne asked Max about what he does to help protect the planet and Max said that he picks up litter and makes eco-bricks comprising plastic bottles of non-recyclable materials.

A Heathrow spokesman said: "We are working with the authorities to address any threat of protests which could disrupt the airport".

The largest donation announced Tuesday was from LVMH Group, which owns Louis Vuitton , Christian Dior and Givenchy. Tech and consulting firm Capgemini has promised €1 million ($1.1 million).

Hundreds of demonstrators have blocked central London sites including Waterloo Bridge over the River Thames, Parliament Square and the Oxford Circus and Marble Arch intersections since Monday.

Scotland Yard has warned protesters the force had "strong plans" in place with a significant number of officers ready to respond.

Earlier on Saturday, about 50 police officers surrounded the group who said they had been told they could remain until "no later than 10.30am".

As the day went on, police stayed at the scene in vans, but there were few officers on the street.

Cathy Eastburn, 51, Mark Ovland, 35, and Luke Watson, 29, were remanded in custody after they were charged over their alleged involvement in obstructing trains at Canary Wharf station on Wednesday morning.

Yesterday Dame Emma blamed police for "wasting taxpayers' money" by tackling the Extinction Rebellion protests which have caused misery for Londoners.

Extinction Rebellion Ireland are calling on the government to declare a climate emergency.
