Police have carried Greta Thunberg away from a protest in the abandoned mining village of Lützerath, Germany.

Climate activists have occupied the village for days, in protest at the planned expansion of a coal mine.

The Garzweiler lignite mine is due to be expanded to meet energy demands after Germany vowed to end their reliance on Russian fuel.
