For some who are vocal against action on climate change, the protest was an example of people who have been driven “mad” by the science on the climate.
Right-wing commentator Nigel Farage tweeted: “What on earth does Captain Tom have to do with private jets?
“These people have been driven mad by bad science and government net zero propaganda.
“They are sick in the head.”

End UK Private Jets is a small climate group that protests and campaigns against the emissions of private aircraft. Last month, another member of their group appeared to accidentally set fire to their own area during a protest at the Laver Cup tennis tournament in London.
According to the group, the 20-year-old male involved in that incident was released from custody but given a £180 fine for aggravated trespass.
