‘Good people’ – Moment police negotiate with Insulate Britain protesters in Birmingham

This is the moment a police officer made a plea to Insulate Britain protesters, telling them: “I don’t want to put good people in a cell.”

Cops began negotiating with the activists after they blocked Paradise Circus this morning (November 2).

BirminghamLive captured the moment a West Midlands Police officer was filmed talking to the protesters.

He told them: “You’ve done what you needed to do today.

“I’m happy for it to go on for like another ten minutes, but after that we don’t want it to go on for another half hour, because you’re not going to prove anything more than you’ve already proven.”
