LONDON - A group of semi-naked climate change protesters created a stir in Britain's parliament on Monday, pressing their bottoms up against a glass panel overlooking the chamber where lawmakers struggled to concentrate on a Brexit debate.

As lawmakers started yet another day of lengthy debate on how or even whether the country should leave the European Union, about 10 protesters stripped to their underpants to show slogans painted on their backs, including: "Climate justice now."Several lawmakers could not stop themselves from looking up towards the public gallery, some giggling as Labour lawmaker Peter Kyle tried to defend his bid for force the government to stage a confirmatory vote on its Brexit deal by pointing out what he called the "naked truth."



At least one protester was later dragged out by police. Some appeared to have glued themselves to the glass.
