Extinction Rebellion campaigners plan to block these roads in Leeds city centre on Friday, May 3.

Members of Extinction Rebellion say it is 'unacceptable' that Leeds City Council supports the expansion of Leeds Bradford Airport (LBA) despite recently having declared a climate emergency.

The group are planning 'swarming' activity, where roads are blocked for seven minutes at a time, on Friday May 3 at 11am.

The group have not yet finalised the full list of roads but have confirmed these roads will be targeted:

Bishopgate Street

Neville Street

The Headrow

Around the Town Hall

Infirmary Street

-> Every Leeds road being closed for Tour de Yorkshire 2019 on Friday
-> Leeds council election results in full - Labour lose four seats but retain overall control
