Man With Hospitalised Dad Hits Out At Insulate Britain Protesters 'Blocking Cancer Treatment'
| Last updated
An enraged man said he hopes Insulate Britain families get cancer so they understand the suffering they are causing people. Watch below:
Protesters have been out in London today (25 October), blocking traffic across the capital.
And in footage shared on social media, one man can be seen blasting the group, telling them that his father who is in hospital cannot be moved around because of their actions.
He says: "Do you know what it's like someone trying to get treatment for cancer and you're standing like this? People are trying to get to hospital, of all places.
"If anyone gets cancer please let it be your family, let you know what it feels like."
The driver then pledged to stop recycling in protest against the group.
But this is not the first time a member of the public has called out the group for affecting their day-to-day life and preventing them or their loved ones from getting the care they need.
Earlier this month, a woman confronted protestors, pleading with them to let her pass so that she could get to her mum who had been rushed to hospital.
In footage shared by LBC, the desperate woman can be seen crying, telling them: "She's in the ambulance, she's going to the hospital in Canterbury, do you think I'm stupid?
"I need to go to the hospital, please let me pass. This isn't OK... How can you be so selfish?"
Protestors in high-vis jackets could be seen speaking to the woman but they did not appear to let her through.
Trying to reason with them, she said: "We all believe in what you're doing but I just need to get to my mum... everybody agrees with you."
At one point she asked why they were there, to which one person replied: "No one is doing anything."
'How can you be so selfish?!'
This desperate motorist pleads with eco protesters blocking the entrance to the Blackwall Tunnel asking them to move so she can get to her sick mother in hospital.

The woman then said: "But that's not my fault! And my mum is the one in an ambulance on the way to hospital!"
She was also heard telling them she had a 'b****y electric car'.
According to the radio station, the woman was later allowed through.
And police were seen struggling to arrest protestors in London this morning after they glued themselves to the road.
Protestors from the group were seen blocking Southwark Bridge in the centre of the capital and preventing traffic from passing.
And in footage posted on social media, several protestors can be seen sitting in front of cars and holding placards as officers attempt to remove them from the road.
However, due to the fact some of them have glued their hands to the road, they were unable to do so and had to use solvent to try and pull them free.
