Commuters heading into Brisbane this morning are being warned of lengthy delays, after a lone climate protester closed a busy bridge.
The protester has built a large tee-pee type structure in the middle of Victoria Bridge, and has suspended herself from the top of it.
She’s displaying a black umbrella with the words ‘climate denial is child abuse’ painted on it.
