Video shows the eco-zealots standing on both sides of carriageway waiting to run across.
In one video police in high-vis jackets are shown pulling members of the group from oncoming traffic.
But as considerate drivers slow down – in fear of harming the protesters – the eco-mob see their opportunity and charge into the road.
They are later seen sitting down while holding ‘Insulate Britain’ banners.
In separate video, another group of protesters on the other side of the motorway then prepare to do the same.
The group on the other side actively stop the traffic and attempt to sit down, leading a police officer to attempt to pull one protester away.
But eventually the traffic stops and the group, like their eco-mob friends on the other side, then sit down and unveil their banners.
It comes as yesterday the group infuriated drivers with a fourth protest in seven days.
Then, in a remarkable twist, the group sent shared an open letter to Home Secretary Priti Patel to ‘profoundly apologise’ for the disruption they have caused.
The group wrote to the Home Secretary in an effort to begin an ‘open dialogue’ and plead with her to ‘demonstrate leadership’.
It comes as Boris Johnson said the group, who are demanding the Government reduce home heating emissions to zero, were doing ‘no favours to their cause’ after their fourth M25 protest in seven days.
