In Scotland the Clyde port authority and Police have reportedly U-turned on a decision to deny permission to four youth climate activists who are aiming to sail up the Clyde to COP26.

The activists, The National writes are members of campaign group Fridays for Future Mapa (Most Affected People and Areas), come from Namibia, Uganda, Mexico and Bangladesh.

They are on Greenpeace ship the Rainbow Warrior and are attempting to sail to the climate conference in Glasgow to demand that world leaders “stop failing” young people across the world.

A request on Saturday night by the ship’s captain for a berth outside the SEC conference centre in Glasgow, where the talks are being held, was refused by the authorities as per a “notice to mariners”, which stated that sailing up the River Clyde is not permitted and that the area is now controlled by Police Scotland.
