Two activists in road trial

TWO PROTESTERS who chained themselves to a digger as part of a campaign to stop a £20 million bypass going ahead will face trial in May.

Rebecca Lush and Victoria Harvey were arrested in January and charged with aggravated trespass following the incident at Valley Farm in Buckinghamshire.

Both entered a not guilty plea at a hearing at Aylesbury Magistrates'Court on Tuesday.

The anti-roads protesters were demonstrating against the Stoke Hammond to Linslade bypass, which was won by Alfred McAlpine this week.

McAlpine is not understood to be taking any special security measures.

The contract is due to start later this month and the firm will have two years to complete the job, also known as the A4146 bypass.
