Just Stop Oil is whining that the German protester, who sparked a 40-hour gridlock when he climbed Dartford Crossing bridge, will be kicked out of the UK when freed from jail.

Marcus Decker, who has leave to remain in the UK, said he had been served with a stage one deportation order.

The 34-year-old and fellow campaigner Morgan Trowland, 40, used ropes and other equipment to scale the 450ft high bridge at the Dartford Crossing last October.

The stunt by Just Stop Oil caused 40 hours of gridlock as police were forced to shut the crossing to traffic amid safety concerns for him and Trowland.

They were given sentences of two years, seven months, and three years for the stunt.
