‘This isn’t about a little bit of sunshine at Easter!’: Moment lawyer arrested in London climate chaos slams Rochelle Humes for her ‘attitude’ over ‘drought threats to UK’ during on-air clash

An environmentalist who super-glued herself to the street as part of climate change protests has slammed This Morning presenter Rochelle Humes live on-air for having an ‘attitude’. 

Farhana Yamin stuck her hand to the pavement outside the Shell building in London yesterday as part of chaotic demonstrations wreaking havoc across the capital.

The Environmental lawyer was brought on the show this morning after being released from Lewisham Police Station hours earlier.

She slammed the ITV presenter for having a blase attitude about the prospect of Britain facing droughts as a result of global warming.

Yamin said: ‘People have often heard about the information, but if I can be candid, they’ve taken a little bit of the attitude that you [Rochelle] had to Dave’s report about the threat the UK faces to droughts.

‘The UK Met Office has warned that we’re expecting droughts to increase in severity. This isn’t about a little bit of sunshine at Easter, this is really really important.

‘British farmers were affected last year by droughts and also by floods.’

Rochelle, who seemed shocked at the protester’s accusations, then replied: ‘Just to clear up, I have no attitude at the fact we’re facing a drought. That’s not correct.’
