Just Stop Oil breaks into Stansted VIP airport and sprays jets with orange paint ‘hours after Taylor Swift’s plane lands’

Just Stop Oil protesters spray-painted jets at a London airport where the group claimed Taylor Swift’s private plane had landed hours earlier.

Two protesters entered a private airfield at Stansted Airport around 5am on Thursday and painted two fighter jets with fire extinguishers filled with orange paint, the group said.

It comes the day after two Just Stop Oil protesters were arrested after spray-painting the historic Stonehenge monument with orange paint.

Just Stop Oil said Cole Macdonald, 22, and Jennifer Kowalski, 28, forced their way into the private airport and demanded that the new British government commit to ending the extraction and burning of oil, gas and coal by 2030.

The pair used an angle grinder to break into the fenced area before covering the planes with orange paint.

A spokesman for Just Stop Oil said: “While governments allow oil companies to run amok and destroy our communities, the actions of individuals mean very little.

“That’s why Just Stop Oil is demanding that our next government sign a legally binding treaty to phase out fossil fuels by 2030.

“If we fail to defend the people they represent, Just Stop Oil supporters, along with citizens from Austria, Canada, Norway, the Netherlands and Switzerland, will join the resistance this summer if their own governments do not take meaningful action.”
