A Glasgow protester is among those who have thrown chocolate cake over a waxwork statue of King Charles at London’s Madame Tussauds museum in their latest demonstration.

Eilidh McFadden, 20, from Glasgow and Tom Johnson, 29, from Sunderland, chucked the dessert in the King’s face in an effort to show their “simple” demand.

“Just stop new oil and gas,” they said. “It’s a piece of cake.”

It comes weeks ahead of COP27, where King Charles is no longer expected to give a speech on the advice of former prime minister Liz Truss.

According to the Met Police, the pair have since been arrested.

In a statement, the force said: "We responded quickly to an incident at Madame Tussauds after two people threw food at a statue at approximately 10:50hrs.They have both been arrested for criminal damage."

UPDATE: Four people have been arrested following the incident.
