An Extinction Rebellion activist who previously went topless at protests has now gone one step further – stripping naked at Downing Street in a raunchy bid to "save the planet".

Laura Amherst, 31, from Brighton, decided to travel to the gates of Prime Minister's home wearing nothing but knee-high rainbow socks.

The activist went on a hunger strike earlier this month telling her social media followers that she wouldn't eat until Prime Minister Boris Johnson "addressed her group's demands on climate change".

Going even further with the appeal, Laura took two placards with her to the gates of No 10 and demanded the "naked truth" on Thursday afternoon (28th Oct).

Laura, who also goes by Climate Tits, has gained a large online following for appearing topless at Extinction Rebellion marches.

The mother-of-one has also created an OnlyFans page and pledged to donate 75 per cent of all of her earnings from the topless content to Extinction Rebellion, Greenpeace, and an animal rescue charity.

She expected to make around £18,000 last month on the page, Mail Online reports.

But now the student has called on her 23,000 Instagram followers to show support to the group's climate change demands.

She wants the government to set a target of achieving net-zero carbon emissions by 2025, as well as address animal agriculture.

A video of the activist at the gates of No 10 shows her approaching security guards and telling them what she is doing "is not against the law".

'"They were trying to threaten me telling me I am breaking the law and harming children,'" she told Jam Press,

"It makes me so angry."

The activist said she was unable to share the images on social media as she feared they would be removed for breaking the platform's guidelines.

She said: "Drastic measures were put in place in war time and in Covid- yet not to stop extinction? The messages are not sinking in that this is an EMERGENCY.

"What is it going to take for people to wake up, and do what needs to be done?"
