Climate protesters try to block UK's Johnson as he goes to palace

LONDON, July 24 (Reuters) - Demonstrators briefly tried to block the wide ceremonial road leading to Buckingham Palace on Wednesday as Britain’s incoming Prime Minister Boris Johnson was driving up it in a convoy to meet Queen Elizabeth to begin his term as leader.

A group of mostly female protesters in red linked hands across the road while others unfurled a “Climate Emergency” banner as they sought to interrupt the passage of a car being accompanied by police outriders. The car moved slowly around them before reaching the palace shortly afterwards. (Reporting by Kate Holton Writing by William Schomberg; editing by Stephen Addison)
