The UK police arrested four people after Just Stop Oil protesters threw cake over King Charles III’s waxwork statue at Madame Tussauds.

Iran PressEurope: Activists walked up to the figure and revealed T-shirts with the climate group’s name at the London attraction on Monday.

They went on to throw cake into the face of the lifelike statue of the king.

Four climate activists were arrested in London Monday for throwing cake at a wax statue of King Charles III — the latest in a series of food-based protests over eco-policy.

“We responded quickly to an incident at Madame Tussauds after two people threw food at a statue at approximately 10:50hrs,” London’s Metropolitan Police tweeted Monday, adding later that four people had been arrested in connection with the protest.

In a statement, Just Stop Oil — a coalition of UK climate activists — identified the pair as Eilidh McFadden, 20, and Tom Johnson, 29.

The duo staged the protest to demand a halt to new gas and oil licenses, the group said.
