The protester ran onto the pitch during Everton ‘s match against Newcastle United at Goodison Park, wearing a t-shirt that said ‘Just Stop Oil’.

He used cable ties to attach himself to the post, with staff racing over to remove him while the game was paused.

He said: “It’s 2022 and it’s time to look up, time to step up and not stand by. It’s time to act like it’s an emergency.
