According to reports, at around 10.50am this morning (Monday, 24th October) four people were arrested after police were called to the popular London museum.

It added, "Two supporters of Just Stop Oil have covered a Madame Tussauds waxwork model of King Charles III with chocolate cake, demanding that the Government halts all new oil and gas licences and consents."
