    Good Morning Britain presenter Susanna Reid slammed a Just Stop Oil activist for having the "audacity" to claim the ITV programme was causing a "distraction" from the cause.

    The activist, who admitted they hadn't watched the morning show, admitted they'd continue problematic protest tactics, despite the consequences, and blamed the media and shows like GMB for causing a distraction.

    Susanna quickly fired back, shocked at the activist's audacity.

    "You have the audacity to come on here and say we're contributing to the distraction when you don't even know what we do here," she shouted.

    Prior to the fiery clash, tensions began to rise when presenter Ed Balls claimed the protestors were losing public support after their protest on the M25 on Wednesday morning had been slammed by motorists.

    Ed said: "You're making it harder for sensible people who want to help climate change, you're losing public support".

    Unphased, the activist replied: "The polls say people support non-violent protests".

    Susanna hit back, astonished at response.

    "We're talking about your tactics, we've spoken about the consequences and you've said you're going to do it anyway, it's a threat", she said.
