Who is Louis McKechnie?

Louis McKechnie, 21, said he and fellow student Nathan McGovern, 22, were “treated well” when they were cut from inside the girders of a terminal in Grays, Ess*x, last night.

Ministers are preparing to hand over injunctions to green mafia kingpins as Priti Patel is again under pressure to crack down on green activists who disrupt fuel supplies amid claims authorities have been too slow to punish them.

Since the protests began on Friday April 1, Ess*x Police have made 356 arrests. Other than the 13 arrested yesterday, none are believed to be in custody.

The Home Secretary is told to seek nationwide injunctions to stop the use of “guerrilla tactics” by the group of largely privileged student and professional protesters who shut down oil terminals by chaining themselves to pipes, digging tunnels or blocking lorries tank.

MailOnline revealed yesterday that Just Stop Oil activists, many of them veterans of the Extinction Rebellion, Animal Rebellion and Insulate Britain movements, include ‘John Lennon lookalike’ McKechnie, who became a poster boy after tying himself to a goal post to interrupt a Premier. League match at Everton last month.

Also in her group are Cressida Gethin, the privately educated daughter of an orchestral agent and former cellist with the London Symphony Orchestra and Miranda Whelehan, 21, the daughter of a pharmaceuticals expert who grew up in a five-bedroom house. and one million pounds sterling at Weybridge. , Surrey.

And the ‘rogue reverend’ Tim Hewes is in the tunnels disrupting a refinery in Warwickshire. He was jailed last year after repeatedly blocking the M25 with the Insulate Britain mob.

The injunctions against her would be similar to those used last year to ban IB fans from blocking roads, allowing police to more easily make arrests, but critics have accused Ms Patel of failing to act. fast enough to neutralize them.

Arrest

But history appears to be repeating itself amid a revolving door of activists arrested and then released to wreak more havoc, even as the group crippled critical UK infrastructure and left petrol stations without fuel.

Attorney General Suella Braverman met with cabinet members last night to work out plans with local councils so they can target specific protesters. They will be presented with injunctions ‘within a few days’, according to the Daily Telegraph.

Ringleader McKechnie, 21, said in a video that the men were being killed at the Grays oil depot in Ess*x last night and were the “last ones standing”. MailOnline has learned that he and 22-year-old Nathan McGovern were arrested at 9 p.m. last night after 40 hours in the rafters.

In an earlier video, McKechnie and McGovern said they had chained themselves to pipes high above the site on Sunday afternoon.

McGovern, who is studying religion, tried to tie himself to a goal post during a game between West Ham and Tottenham and also stuck his hand to a microphone during a heated exchange at LBC last weekend.

Statement

In the strongest statement yet about the ‘Just Stop Oil’ eco-mafia, Number 10 promised yesterday that it would ‘not tolerate’ those who obstruct people ‘in their everyday business’.

In response to Just Stop Oil’s tactics, a No 10 spokeswoman said: “We recognize that strength of feeling and the right to protest are the cornerstone of our democracy, but we will not tolerate guerrilla tactics that obstruct people. in their daily activities. business of the day.’

The spokeswoman added: “We fully support the police who are putting significant resources into their response to the demonstrations.”
