Protesters were pictured holding a sign reading ‘Black Friday exploits people and planet’ in Dartford, Kent this morning.

An Amazon warehouse in Tilbury, Essex has also been targeted, with delays expected in rush hour traffic.

Essex Police tweeted: ‘We’re dealing with a protest outside an Amazon warehouse in Windrush Road, #Tilbury and engaging with people at the scene to ensure it remains safe.
