Commuters faced some disruption as the group made their way to St Helier from St Brelade's Parish Hall in St Aubin from 7.45am.

Speaking ahead of the event Milly Tipping, a spokeswoman for Extinction Rebellion Jersey, said that the planned demonstration seemed the most effective way to get the group’s message across.

‘It is the best way that we can think of to raise awareness at the moment but we are open to suggestions,’ she said.

‘We are trying to get the message across that cycling is much more efficient, it can save you time and – at the same time – you can help save the world.'
