Rotherwas Ribbon protesters' charges dropped
The case against six people detained after protesting at a British council meeting has been discontinued. The six were arrested at a meeting of Hereford County Council in July when they protested to save the remains of a Bronze Age footpath. Plans to build a road over the 4,000-year-old Rotherwas Ribbon, as it is known, are going ahead. The Crown Prosecution Service said there was not enough evidence to secure convictions. The six were charged with aggravated trespass. The Rotherwas Ribbons is a series of deliberately fire-cracked stones and was found during excavation work for a new road.
