'Ribbon' protestors allowed to attend further meetings

An elderly couple arrested for their part in the Rotherwas Ribbon (England) prehistoric site protests have been given the all-clear to attend further council meetings. Mervyn and Virginia Morgan were arrested on July 12 following a sit-in at a Herefordshire Council cabinet meeting at Brockington. The couple, aged 81 and 72, pleaded not guilty to aggravated tresspassing at Hereford Magistrates, while a third protestor, Jacqueline Tonge, of Bute Avenue, Putson, Hereford, also appeared but did not enter a plea. A condition banning the couple from attending further council meetings was overturned by magistrates, eliciting a round of applause from a packed public gallery. The Morgan's defence lawyer, Roger Dallimore, accused the council or being heavy-handed and compared the order to "hitting a walnut with a sledgehammer".
