Protester Dressed as Spider-Man Unfurls Anti-Lockdown Banner From Scaffolding at Westminster

A man in a Spider-Man costume unfurled a banner critical of the UK’s tiered COVID-19 lockdown system from scaffolding at the Houses of Parliament in London on October 22.

One of the two banners said there should be no Tier 3 lockdown in the north unless the region was given an extra £2 billion. A separate banner said “Black Lives + All Lives Matter”.

A close-up shot of the man showed he was also wearing an Extinction Rebellion vest.

This video shows the man and a crowd cheering him from Westminster Bridge.

Police said they were responding at the scene. Credit: @MamaNature1st via Storyful
