Campaigners were this afternoon evicted from the site of a massive new mine in Telford after defying UK Coal bosses for 18 months.
An eviction team working on behalf of the company was sent onto the site in Huntington Lane, Little Wenlock, this morning to remove the protesters and destroy their camp.
Location announced, workshop schedule published, and how the kids space is going to work. All for the Earth First! Summer Gathering which begins on the 10th of August and runs until the 15th.
Get in touch if you need more information.
