Four held over pipe protest

Four members of the environmental pressure group Greenpeace were arrested yesterday in connection with criminal damage to an effluent pipe at the Aldermaston nuclear plant, near Reading, on Easter Monday.

Documents and computer files were seized during a raid on the group's headquarters in Islington, north London, by about 40 Ministry of Defence police on Wednesday.

The four - John Sauven, 40, Janet Convery, 39, Iain McSeveny, 33 and William Peden, 29 - were later released without charge on police bail.
