Dramatic moment furious motorist in Range Rover drives into Insulate Britain protesters blocking the road
THE dramatic moment a furious motorist drives her Range Rover at Insulate Britain protesters has been caught on video.
Footage shows a pair group of protesters being confronted by the woman who screams at them “let me take my son to school”.
After getting back into her car the woman gets back into her car and drives at a pair of them pushing them along the road.
Other people at the side of the road can also be heard swearing at the Insulate Britain protesters.
The confrontation began when the woman pulled up in her Range Rover and got out to remonstrate with the protesters.

"I'm not joking, my son needs to get to school,move out of the road," she said.
As a woman protester explains why they're demonstrating, the woman blasts: "My son is 11, he needs to get to school and I need to get to work.
"So move out of the way then. Let me get my son so school."
At that point the furious woman gets back in her car and drives at a pair of protesters.
As a man can he heard shouting "go on push 'em", she then drives into their backs.
She then gets back out and yells: "I don't care what the f*****g issue is, my son needs to get to school."
It appears the video was shot when school run mums and lorry drivers were held up at an industrial estate near the Dartford Crossing at Purfleet.
Insulate Britain is an Extinction Rebellion off-shoot campaign group.
Its eco warriors are calling on the UK Government to put in place policy and funding for a national home insulation programme.
Starting with all social housing they have demanded that Prime Minister Boris Johnson makes “significant legislative change to start lowering emissions".
The protesters have caused misery for motorists in recent weeks with sit-ins on Britain's busiest motorway.
The group has faced plenty of accusations about hypocrisy – and ringleader Liam Norton himself admitted he "doesn't care" about insulation.
The Sun exclusively revealed that Norton – who stormed off Good Morning Britain after a clash with Susanna Reid – doesn't even insulate his own home.
