New video shows the moments a furious driver ties an Insulate Britain activist to metal railings using the protester's own banner.

The video clip was shared by Insulate Britain and is believed to have happened on the morning of October 13, when activists blocked roads around the M25 near Thurrock for the 13th day of protests in the space of four weeks.

The footage shows a male protester being tied to metal railings with an Insulate Britain wrapped around his bag and strapped in place behind his back.

The 22-second video clip starts with a female activist being dragged off the road by a man, while people in cars and lorries sound their horns.

As soon as the protester is dragged out of the way, a lorry and a queuing line of cars start to drive through the traffic lights where the activists attempted to stop traffic.

The footage then turns to a man wearing a red baseball cap and hooded jumper who is threading an Insulate Britain poster through an activist's bag and attempting to tie it to metal barriers behind him.

The activist, who is seated in the traffic island in the middle of the road while wearing a hi-vis vest over his clothes, does little to stop the man tying him to the metal barriers.

As the clip continues, motorists continue sounding their horns, while the man who dragged the female protester off the road screams 'go' at the queue of vehicles that had built around the traffic lights.

Other people also arrive on the scene and attempt to block the activists from getting back onto the road. 

The clip ends with the female activist standing in the central traffic island, the male activist remains seated next to the metal barriers and vehicles, including a petrol lorry, are driven through the traffic lights unimpeded.

The incident is believed to have happened on October 13 when irate motorists reacted angrily to the 13th major protest by the eco-zealots in four weeks after the group targeted the M25, the Blackwall Tunnel in London and the Port of Dover - at a time when the country was already facing a major supply chain crisis.

The eco-mob are demanding the Government pay to improve insulation in Britain's social housing stock, but have come under fire over claims one of the group's ringleaders lives in a home which is not properly insulated. 

The green group last week suspended their 'campaign of civil resistance' ahead of next week's Cop26. 

Government officials meanwhile are attempting to use injunctions and court powers to bring an end to the disruptive protests of the eco-zealots - who have repeatedly bounced from police station to protests with police seemingly unable to stop them.  

The short video clip also shows a long queue of lorries and cars that had been waiting at a set of traffic lights where Insulate Britain activists had gathered for their 13th major protest

In another piece of footage filmed on October 13, a woman, angry about being delayed taking her son to school, is seen driving her 4x4 into the back of two protesters.

As she does, one of the orange-vest-wearing activists screams out, while another standing protestor taps on the car and urges her to stop.

The woman was today revealed to be Sherrilyn Speid, 34, from Purfleet, Essex.

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.' 

A lorry driver was also seen driving his vehicle right up to protesters on a day when Essex Police said they made a total of 35 arrests.

The protester on the right started to scream before the woman stopped, got out of her car and continued shouting at the protesters

Earlier today, an injunction granted to Transport for London against Insulate Britain protesters was extended by a High Court judge.

London's transport network was granted the order earlier this month, which is aimed at preventing the Extinction Rebellion offshoot from obstructing traffic on some of the capital's busiest roads.

It came after the group shut down Old Street, near the hipster enclave of Shoreditch in east London. 

A judge said the injunction was extended either until a trial is held, a further court order or April 8 next year. 

The TfL injunction bans the protesters from blocking traffic in various locations across the capital, such as Vauxhall Bridge, Tower Bridge, London Bridge and Chiswick roundabout.

It applies to busy London spots including Hanger Lane, the Hammersmith gyratory system, Blackwall Tunnel, the A501 ring road from Edgware Road to Old Street, Staples Corner, Redbridge roundabout and the Kidbrooke interchange. 

Protesters are also barred from Park Lane, Marble Arch Hyde Park Corner, Elephant and Castle -  including all entry and exit roads and the Victoria one-way system. 

The eco-zealots last week revealed they would 'suspend their campaign of civil resistance' until October 25 - ahead of the Cop26 summit in November.

Activists penned a letter to Boris Johnson saying they would stop their hated antics and quoted the PM's hero Sir Winston Churchill in an apparent bid to win him over.

The surprise move came just hours after it emerged more than a dozen of their members will finally face court action and possible jail within days.

Just over a month after the first roadblocks brought chaos to the motorways, officials are set to ask judges to take action against the eco-warriors.  

Insulate Britain's letter to the PM revealed it planned to suspend protests for 11 days.

Insulate Britain's letter to Prime Minister Boris Johnson in full:

Dear Prime Minister,

'Owing to past neglect, in the face of the plainest of warnings, we have entered upon a period of danger.

The era of procrastination, of half measures, of soothing baffling expedients, of delays is coming to its close. In its place we are entering a period of consequence.' (Winston Churchill 1936)

Insulate Britain would like to take this opportunity to profoundly acknowledge the disruption caused over the past five weeks. We cannot imagine undertaking such acts in normal circumstances. But the dire reality of our situation has to be faced.

The facts are laid out by Sir David King, the former chief scientific advisor to the UK government, he said 'We have to move quickly. What we do, I believe, in the next 3 to 4 years will determine the future of humanity'.

The collapse of the climate is happening around us. We face economic chaos and the breakdown of law and order in a matter of years. We will lose our incomes, pensions, and savings while passing on an appalling legacy to our children. They will be rightly furious. Around the world thousands of millions of people will lose their lives through slaughter and starvation as crops fail and society collapses.

Ahead of COP26, Insulate Britain will suspend its campaign of civil resistance until Monday 25th October. In light of the speech you made (to the UN on the 22nd September) in which you recognised that 'We are approaching that critical turning point – in less than two months – when we must show that we are capable of learning, and maturing, and finally taking responsibility for the destruction we are inflicting, not just upon our planet but ourselves', we ask you to use this time to signal that you believe what you say.

We invite you to make a meaningful statement that we can trust, a statement that the country wants to hear: that your government will live up to its responsibilities to protect us, to defend law and order; that your government will take the lead needed to insulate and retrofit our homes; that it
