Protesters lay siege to Drax

Protesters have closed part of Moorgate, demonstrating outside the offices of Drax Power. Drax appear to have been targeted because of its intention to build a new gas-fired power station in Yorkshire. Moorgate has been closed to traffic in both directions between the junction of Lothbury and London Wall due to the protests.

Action has included sit-ins on the street, banners raised on scaffolding and a number of people dressed in smart white suits.
