Six Greenpeace activists arrested yesterday

nSix Greenpeace activists were arrested yesterday as thousands of people across Britain marked the Hiroshima anniversary, writes Jojo Moyes.

The six were held for daubing "shadows" outside the gates to Downing Street and a French embassy building. The symbols represented the aftermath of the atomic explosion, when all that remained of the vapourised victims was their outlines.
