A number of stars joined a march in London on Sunday that called on world leaders to make a difference at the COP21 climate change summit in Paris.

Among the famous faces at the march were Emma Thompson, Vivienne Westwood, Charlotte Church and Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke.

“I went to the Arctic with my daughter last year and saw for myself the degradation of the environment there and it made me and helped me understand in a much more visceral real way what was happening to the planet,” Thompson told AFP. “So I’m here today to really get behind the climate summit in Paris which is actually a really historical event… We need those countries to come together and agree on protocols that will bring our fossil fuel emissions down to acceptable levels and we’re going to have to agree it quickly. This is the beginning.”
