Campaigner jailed for trespass at US radar base
Lindis Percy, the veteran campaigner against US bases in Britain, was yesterday sentenced to one month in jail. Christine Dean, a fellow member of the Campaign for the Accountability of American Bases, said Percy was sentenced at Scarborough magistrates court after being found guilty of aggravated trespass at the Fylingdales early warning radar station in North Yorkshire. The station was recently upgraded and will be part of America's missile defence system. Percy, convicted under the 1994 Criminal Justice and Public Order Act, has been jailed before for her protests.
