A GIANT ice block was brought to ExCeL today by environmental campaigners...and police helped the campaigners set up their display inside the exclusion zone.
The Fossil Fools Day Climate Emergency demo was held outside the exhibition and conference centre the day before world leaders were due for the G20 summit.
The group encouraged supporters to bring their own ice blocks and to dress in white.
The demonstration was peaceful and to the point...unlike the protests going on in central London
