Two animal rights activists left a mess in two London department stores in protest at the dairy industry.

Steve Bone and Ferndandes Pontes targeted Fortnum & Mason and Selfridges on Friday.

The activists, who belong to the Animal Rebellion group, began emptying milk bottles they had taken off the shelves onto the floor and other displays.

Video taken at the scene showed them being escorted out of the building by security personnel.

At 12.30pm they repeated the stunt at Selfridges on Oxford Street, pouring milk over a cheese counter.

An angry witness was heard offscreen asking security, “Aren’t you going to intervene?” to which one replied, “We’re not allowed to.”

They staged the protest “to highlight the need for the transition to a plant-based food system” (Image: PA).

Another buyer said, “You guys should be ashamed of yourselves.”

As the activists were about to leave, he said, “Yeah, throw off now, fuck off.”

Another shopper appeared to be trying to block Ms Fernandes’ way as she exited the store, reaching out and smacking her neck.

After the protest, she said: “I don’t want to see my children growing up in a world surrounded by drought, nature destruction and food shortages.

“I want them to see a world full of wildlife and beauty.”

Mr Bone said: “I have been taking action throughout September to push for a plant-based future and I am taking action again today because Liz Truss and Ranil Jayawardena still refuse to listen.

“My little girl’s future is at stake and the government’s response is to ignore the advice of Oxford and Harvard and instead push us all further into the climate, environmental and livelihood crisis.”

A Metropolitan Police spokesman said no arrests had been made but confirmed officers had been called to reports of criminal damage.
