A group took part in a gathering at Wood End Lane earlier this week.

A spokesperson for the local branch of Extinction Rebellion said:

“Around 30 protesters spent the day on Wood End Lane, a samba band was present and protesters will be back very soon.

“Cutting down trees is not just a sore eye situation, it’s also an ecological disaster.”
