Eight Oxford environmental campaigners have ended their blockade of a coal power station, two hours after they started.

The climate change campaigners used a bike lock to close the staff entrance at Aberthaw Power Station in Barry, South Wales, at 7.30am.

They also climbed inside metal pipes to stop anyone getting past.

All eight ended their protest at 9.15am after the power station management told staff not to come to work for the day.

The power station is run by RWE npower, which also owns Didcot Power Station.

A separate group of protesters from Bristol are continuing to blockade the main entrance.
