A large group of young climate change protestors have just blocked off Oxford Road in the middle of Manchester city centre.

The protest was part of a rally over climate change and saw the dozens-strong group taking action by sitting down in the middle of one of the city's busiest roads.

Buses were diverted and police were quickly on the scene to calmly disperse the young demonstrators, who were very well organised and remained peaceful.

No arrests were made during the demonstration, which was set up to urge leaders to tackle climate change.

This was the third climate control protest of the year so far - and the third consecutive month - and we have a feeling it won't be the last.

The road is now clear, ready for Friday rush hour.
