HS2 protester spends night under digger in effort to stop demolition
Occupation by Sarah Green, 62, later joined by other protesters, is intended to be part of rolling campaign along rail link’s route
A 62-year-old environmental protester has spent more than 20 hours underneath a large digger as part of a new campaign to block the construction of the controversial HS2 high speed rail link.
Sarah Green, a member of the Green party and a businesswoman in Hillingdon, started her protest under the digger, which is to be used for preparatory demolition work, in part of the Colne valley nature reserve at around lunchtime on Monday. Several other activists later joined her under the digger.
