“Liberal Democrats from all over the country came to make clear that for our part there is no issue of greater importance," said the Liberal Democrat Shadow Energy and Climate Change Secretary.

Commenting after demonstrations across the UK urged tough action to tackle climate change ahead of crunch talks in Copenhagen, Simon Hughes said:

“Thousands of people have shown today that urgent action to combat the climate crisis is their top political priority.

“Liberal Democrats from all over the country came to make clear that for our part there is no issue of greater importance.

“Only brave and radical decisions to cut emissions and help the most threatened parts of the world will be a satisfactory result for the Copenhagen Conference that starts on Monday.”
