This week's Extinction Rebellion (XR) demonstrations have closed key routes through the capital, cost businesses tens of millions in lost revenue, inconvenienced half a million people a day, and resulted in at least 682 arrests, but show no sign of abating.
The protesters - gathered by an environmentalist group called the Extinction Rebellion - demanded the government to acknowledge there is an environment crisis, enact legally binding policies to reduce carbon emission by 2025 and form citizens' assembly to "oversee the changes" needed to achieve this goal.
However, Metropolitan Police commander, Jane Connors, said: "I'm disappointed by the video and the unacceptable behaviour of the officers in it".
On Saturday morning, about 30 protesters moved closer to each other and sat down in the centre of the Oxford Circus junction as police threatened more arrests.
A Heathrow spokesman said: "We are working with the authorities to address any threat of protests which could disrupt the airport".

But Dieter Bohn, executive editor of technology news site The Verge , says he left that layer on and his screen still broke. A tweet from Mark Gurman: "The screen on my Galaxy Fold review unit is completely broken and unusable just two days in".
This has got to be the right use of everybody's time, we are sleepwalking into a climate catastrophe.
Ken Marsh, chairman of the Metropolitan Police Federation, told BBC Breakfast on Friday that protests had been "very, very difficult" for the force because it was an "alien" situation for a lot of them. Speaking of the protests, Thompson said she couldn't attend from the beginning as she was celebrating her birthday. "I have seen the evidence for myself and I really care about my children and grandchildren enough to want to be here today to stand with the next generation", declared Thompson, 60.
Speaking from Waterloo Bridge, Dr Gail Bradbrook, a cofounder of the XR group, said demonstrators would continue to act despite the first people being charged over the disruption. Government advisers are expected to put forward new targets next month.
