THREE women have been reported for summons for obstructing the highway at Doggetts Crossroads after forming a human chain across a road near the Hinkley Point power station on Wednesday (April 1).

Following negotiations by the Hinkley Policing Team, the three voluntarily dis-engaged by 9.30am having begun their protest without warning less than three hours earlier.

The trio from the Bristol area (aged 55, 61 and 73) will appear in court at a later date.

The safety of the power station was never compromised say police.
