Black Lives Matter Protesters Block Access To London's Heathrow Airport

Black Lives Matter protesters blocked the main road to London's Heathrow Airport today, bringing traffic to a standstill at the busiest airport in Europe.

Ten people were arrested during the demonstration, which brought traffic to a standstill at the peak of the holiday season, while another five were held for blocking a road to Birmingham airport in central England, police said.

Black Lives Matter UK had called for a national "shutdown" to mark the fifth anniversary of the police shooting of Londoner Mark Duggan, whose death in 2011 spark several nights of rioting in cities across England.
