A photographer has been evicted from Harrods by security guards after Just Stop Oil staged a ‘boring’ protest.

The eco-group paraded through the luxury department store in one of their latest stunts.

Campaigners were pictured holding placards on an escalator at the Knightsbridge store.

However, at least five store security guards stumbled upon press photographer Tom Bowles, who was photographing JSO’s stunt.

Footage shows him being pushed down the stairs by a group of men who grabbed his coat.

Mr Bowles later tweeted: “The protest was a lot less interesting than the exit.”

Several slow marches took place on Wednesday, including 34 supporters marching in six groups in Hammersmith, Victoria, Westminster, Kensington and Tower Bridge from around 8am, with a further four from 10am including Parliament Square.

Four people were arrested on Wednesday, including a supporter whom the JSO named Reverend Bill White, who was arrested three times this week while taking part in slow marches.

It’s the latest near-daily protest organized by the JSO since April 24, calling on the government to end new fossil fuel licenses.

Monitoring the demonstrations has so far cost the Metropolitan Police more than £5.5million, on top of the £7.5million they spent dealing with the JSO protests between October and December last year.

Security has been tightened at Wimbledon to prevent the group from disrupting the game with their signature powder orange colourway, after a number of other high profile sporting events were suspended.

England cricketer Johnny Bairstow carried a protester off the pitch during the suspension of the second Ashes Test at Lord’s after protesting at the Gallagher Premiership Rugby Final at Twickenham and the World Snooker Championships.

JSO also disrupted the Chelsea Flower Show and London Pride march.
