Now Just Stop Oil invade HARRODS: Security guards swoop as eco-zealots occupy £28,000 bed at the ‘top people’s store’ (but remember to take their shoes off first)
In video footage shared online, a team of security guards can be seen rushing towards two female protesters who had unfurled themselves on a sofa for sale.
One can be heard shouting ‘get up, get out!’ as he warns them they will be trespassing if they do not leave of their own accord.
Elsewhere in the luxury store, based in Knightsbridge, two protesters climbed into a £28,000 bed – although they were careful to take their shoes off first.

They held up signs reading ‘end fuel poverty now’ and ‘oil equals death’
Just Stop Oil said: ‘At around 1pm, 4 #JustStopOil supporters briefly occupied beds and sofas in @Harrods to demand that the #Government Just Stop Fuel Poverty by insulating homes and ending our reliance on expensive, dangerous and dirty fossil fuels.
‘They were rapidly escorted out of the store by around 20 security guards.’
The eco-mob said they had launched today’s action in solidarity with Fuel Poverty Action’s Energy For All campaign, as well as the Don’t Pay UK movement, which encourages homeowners to not pay their energy bills amid surging costs.
