Three women have been arrested on suspicion of criminal damage after a Chelsea Flower Show garden was targeted by Just Stop Oil Protesters on Thursday morning (May 25).
Activists released several packets of orange powder paint across the flowers and hard landscaping of The RBC Brewin Dolphin Garden designed by Paul Hervey-Brookes at the world-famous flower show, which is located on the site of Royal Hospital Chelsea in southwest London.
The Show Garden, which was awarded a Silver-Gilt medal by judges earlier this week, is sponsored by the wealth management firm RBC Brewin Dolphin. Following the incident, garden designer and plantsman Paul said on Twitter that his garden has been 'permanently damaged.'
The Met Police wrote on Twitter: 'Officers responded to an incident at #ChelseaFlowerShow this morning. Three people were arrested at the scene on suspicion of criminal damage in connection with a #JSO protest. Inquiries are ongoing.'
