Four more charged over power plant protest plot

Four more people have been charged in connection with a plot to break into a power station, police said today.

In a major operation earlier this year, officers arrested 114 alleged protesters ahead of a suspected demonstration at Ratcliffe-on-Soar power station in Nottinghamshire.

The group was arrested at an independent school in the Sneinton Dale area of Nottingham during the swoop on 13 April.

Today, police said Anna Rudd, 30, of Cliff Mount, Leeds, Jacqueline Ann Sheedy, 44, of Foulden Road, London, Daniel Joshua Glass, 25, of Willowbank Street, Glasgow, and Anthony Mullen, 35, of Andover Street, Sheffield, have been charged with conspiracy to commit aggravated trespass.

They will appear at Nottingham Magistrates' Court next Tuesday.

A Nottinghamshire Police spokeswoman said the latest charges bring the total number of people facing court action to 23.
