Similar banners were displayed in over 120 locations across the country on a variety of buildings, bridges and even boats.

The Bill is designed to help in the reversal of climate and ecological breakdown by asking the Government to take responsibility for its part in greenhouse-gas emissions; to restore biodiverse habitats in the UK; and to reduce damage to the environment caused by the production, transportation, and disposal of goods.

A local spokesman said: "Local alliances of individuals, groups and businesses are being formed to encourage MPs to back the CEE Bill and more than 100 have already pledged their support.
