St Albans could be disrupted again because of an activist group protest this weekend over climate change.
Herts police are warning of a potential event taking place in the city centre this Saturday, September 7.
The group Extinction Rebellion told the Herts Ad that it is having a 'swarming action' where the ER declaration will be read out.
Extinction Rebellion is described as a movement that uses non-violent civil disobedience to aim to improve the world for future generations.
Police are working with the local authority and making enquiries into the nature and scale of the event.
