Greta Thunberg says she wanted to come to Bristol because the 'climate change movement is very strong in the city'.

Thousands of people today gathered at a rally to hear her speak in the city centre, before a march through the city.

She said "if enough people push for change, change will come."

She also reflected on how expansion plans for Bristol Airport were turned down this month by North Somerset Council - which has declared a climate emergency - generating cheers from the assembled crowd.

One person in the crowd took to Twitter to reflect on the schools strike and point out 'there's children with climate strike signs bigger than them'. 

Below are some of the major Tweets shared this afternoon:
