SILVERSTONE, England, Aug 2 (Reuters) - Police said they arrested four people on Sunday after protesters displayed a banner for climate action group Extinction Rebellion during the British Formula One Grand Prix.

Northamptonshire Police and Silverstone circuit said the four were detained by security inside the venue perimeter. "Officers are working closely with Silverstone Circuit and conducting a full investigation," they said.

The race was closed to spectators due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
