A group of environmental activists have rappelled off a bridge in Portland, Oregon, in a bid to block a key vessel in Shell’s Arctic drilling fleet leaving the city’s port.

Greenpeace said that 13 of its climbers were hanging off St Johns bridge and had enough supplies to last days in their attempt to hinder Shell’s Arctic drilling plans, with another 13 people assisting them.
