And finally… nothing happens

Anti-vaccine protesters have failed in a bid to “bring London to a total standstill” by wantonly pressing buttons on pedestrian crossings.

Members of a thousands-strong Facebook group were urged to “remind this government that NOTHING moves or happens in this country unless the people agree to it”.

“If we all commit to this project London will be gridlocked, and if needs be we will do it every day, nationwide, until they remember their place,” they wrote.

The group planned to carry out its novel protest from 7am to 10am on Monday, MyLondon reports, but no disruption was caused.

According to Transport for London, most pedestrian crossings in London are fully automated and the buttons serve no function except at night.
