Christmas shoppers in Peterborough on Sunday may have spotted the Red Rebel Brigade.

The brigade were seen gliding through the city, silently protesting against the “impacts of consumerism on the environment”.

Natural resources, they say, are taken out of the earth and turned into goods that produce emissions that contribute to global warming.

The protesters are hoping to get shoppers to consider their shopping traits, particularly at this time of year.
