A furious mother who rammed Insulate Britain activists with her Range Rover after they blocked the road as she tried to take her son to school has been revealed as an entrepreneur who started her own food business during lockdown

Sherrilyn Speid, 34, from Purfleet, Essex, was filmed driving her car into Insulate Britain protesters who were blocking the road by traffic lights at junction 31 of the M25 near Thurrock, on the north side of the Dartford Crossing which links Essex to Kent.

The activists were part of a group of more than 40 demonstrators who ran out onto the road by traffic lights on October 13.

The footage - filmed by another person at the protest - shows the woman believed to be Ms Speid get out of the Range Rover to confront the protesters. 

After they refuse to move, she then drove her Range Rover at them - prompting one to scream out in pain. 

Reacting to footage of the confrontation, Ms Speid wrote on Instagram today: 'I never ran them over, I gave them a nudge. So dramatic man.' 

Ms Speid was today revealed as an entrepreneur who started a food business during lockdown, providing Caribbean food to the local Essex community. 

Her business then spread across Essex and London with companies asking her to cater events.

The video of Ms Speid, filmed in Thurrock last Wednesday, showed her black Range Rover driving up to the backs of three activists who are sitting on the road holding an Insulate Britain poster. 

After stopping just centimetres from the back of one protester, the woman, believed to be Ms Speid, got out of her car, ripped the poster from the activists and said: 'Move out the way. I'm not joking. My son needs to get to school and I need to get to work.'

As she moved to lean over one of the sitting protesters, she then added: 'Move out the way. Move out the way now.'

She then returned to her car while saying: 'I'll drive through you then. My son is 11 and he needs to get to school.'

One of the protesters turned to her and said 'you can't drive through us' before the infuriated mother again said her son needed to get to school and she needed to get to work.

The protester told Ms Speid 'she understands' and that she is 'sorry' about blocking her route.
