Police have arrested eight eco campaigners who were part of a group staging a climate change demonstration at Didcot Power Station today.

Eleven protesters had chained themselves to a coal conveyor at the plant, while nine others staged a sit in at the top of Didcot A tower.

Police cut eight protesters from the coal conveyor one-by-one and arrested them on suspicion of aggravated trespass.

A spokesman said officers expected to make a further three arrests in the next hour.

Meanwhile, the nine protesters currently occupying the top of Didcot A tower will remain there overnight.
