Climate change activists in St Albans have been working through the night to create protest flags for national demonstrations.
Members of Extinction Rebellion St Albans have created 80 flags with its distinctive hourglass logo to be used for the group's International Rebellion in London from October 7.
This is a series of protests designed to disrupt the capital and push the government to take climate change seriously.
Extinction Rebellion flag-maker Caro said: "We made a makeshift printing press out of old cardboard and newspapers.
"It took a while to get the process running efficiently but we soon got very quick at it."
