NINE Insulate Britain activists have been JAILED and face paying £91,000 after flouting a ban on blocking the M25. Two eco-zealots were on Wednesday handed three-month sentences, while six were imprisoned for four months after admitting they defiantly blocked motorway traffic on October 8. The ninth activist Ben Taylor was jailed for six months after he vowed to keep blocking the motorway if he wasn't locked up. He told the High Court this week: "I will go and block the motorway at the earliest opportunity and will continue to do so until the Government makes a meaningful statement and acts on it." Judge Dame Victoria Sharp blasted Ben's comment as "inflammatory" and dubbed them a "call to arms". She said the six-month sentence sought to "deter (him) from committing further breaches". Ben Buse, 36, Ana Heyatawin, 58, Louis McKechnie, 20, Roman Paluch, 28, Oliver Roc, 41, Emma Smart, 44, Tim Speers, 36, James Thomas, 47, and Ben Taylor were seen glumly walking into London's High Court this morning. They now face paying a £91,000 fine after it was requested by the prosecution.
