Protests at Notts Power Plant End

Total of 21 people arrested following week-long protest at West Burton Power Plant.

Four more people have been arrested this morning (Monday 5th November) by police at the West Burton Power Station - campaigners had been there since 2am last Monday morning.

A total of 21 people have now been arrested on suspicion of aggravated trespass.

None of the protestors live in Nottinghamshire - and come from a number of places in the country.

Officers and EDF Energy (who own the plant) are working together to search the sites and take out anything the protestors may've left behind.

Last week police told Capital the cost of policing this could be as much as £200,000.
