Oil protest group failed to clear plastic rubbish


The campaign group Just Stop Oil has apologised for leaving plastic rubbish near a protest site on a farm.

Farmer Charles Goadby said he had found a pile of bottles, chairs and other rubbish close to where a group of activists had demonstrat­ed at Kingsbury oil terminal in Warwickshi­re. He accused the group of being hypocritic­al and of “destroying the countrysid­e and putting our wildlife at risk with rubbish” in a video on Twitter.

In a statement in response, Just Stop Oil said Mr Goadby was “right to be angry” and that “the area should have been cleaned, so that the land, people and wildlife are protected”.
