Environmental protesters at HS2 site threatened with injunction
Letters served at Hillingdon site say government plans to seek high court injunctions to prevent further demonstrations
Seven environmental protesters on the site of the HS2 development in the Colne Valley in Hillingdon have been threatened with injunctions by the transport secretary and HS2 Ltd in a bid to prevent their continued demonstrations on the controversial site.
Letters were served on Tuesday by hand at the Harvil Road site, where regular protests against the impact of the project on trees and wildlife have been staged since last October. They inform the protesters that the government and HS2 plan to seek high court injunctions against them to prevent them from demonstrating on the site.
