Extinction rebellion co-founder Gail Bradbook has been exposed by a fellow shopper as having a diesel car and importing food from the other side of the world.
The 50-year-old, who helped set up XR in 2018, was spotted out and about at a Waitrose store in Stroud, Gloucestershire.
Bradbook pulled up to supermarket driving a polluting 1.5 litre diesel car.
The mother-of-two loaded her trolley with goods from across the world, stretching from Chile to Cyprus and India to Italy.
The items were also swathed in plastic and polythene.
An onlooker told The Sun: “Buying fruit flown halfway round the world in non-recyclable packaging then driving home in a diesel motor — what a towering hypocrite.
“But at least she wasn’t held up on her way home by idiots who glued themselves to the road.”
Images taken of the eco-activist showed where her items were originally from and suggested she is less concerned about items travelling thousands of air miles.
