Today 18 of the 20 activists, several of them from in or around Oxford, found guilty of conspiring to commit aggregated trespass in order to shut down Ratcliffe on Soar power station were sentenced.

The judge spoke broadly about the defendants’ qualities as a whole – commending them for their references, which repeatedly described them as ‘honest’, ‘dedicated’, ‘committed’, ‘intelligent’ and ‘caring’.

13 of the activists received conditional discharges, and two of these were fined £500 / £1,000. The other five were given community service orders. The remaining two will be sentenced 'at a later date.'
