COPENHAGEN (Reuters) - Total has halted operations at its Dan Bravo oil production platform in the Danish North Sea, the French company said on Tuesday, after Greenpeace activists climbed aboard to protest future oil and gas exploration.

Four Greenpeace activists swam 500 metres to climb on to the unmanned Total-operated oil platform on Tuesday.

A Total spokeswoman said operations had been halted but declined to say how much output had been affected.
