Two courtrooms will set aside a day a week for nearly five months to deal with hundreds of cases after the Extinction Rebellion protests in London.

Westminster Magistrates’ Court will have two rooms handling just the protesters for one day a week, with more than 50 every Friday due to be summonsed.

The Metropolitan Police said 10 people have already been through the courts, with seven convicted of a criminal offence and three cases discontinued. The City of London court will have its first 35 protester hearings on Friday.
