Activists have thrown cake into the face of King Charles’s waxwork at London’s Madame Tussauds. Video footage posted on social media showed two protesters wearing Just Stop Oil T-shirts throwing cake in the King’s face.
The Metropolitan Police said four people had been arrested for criminal damage. Madame Tussauds said: “At approximately 10.50 am today (24 Oct), protestors entered the ‘World Stage’ Zone at Madame Tussauds London and appeared to throw what is believed to be cake at our figures of The Royal Family.”
“Our security team dealt with the incident quickly and we are working closely with the Metropolitan Police on this matter. The attraction remains open, with our Royal Family set closed temporarily.”
It is reported the protesters were calling for the government to halt all new oil and gas licences and consent.
