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."
