Just Stop Oil Bridge Protesters Found Guilty of Causing Public Nuisance

Two Just Stop Oil protesters who scaled the Queen Elizabeth II Bridge at the Dartford Crossing have been found guilty of causing a public nuisance at Basildon Crown Court this morning. Morgan Trowland and Marcus Decker, who squatted on the bridge back in October, caused two-hour traffic delays in the name of “no new oil and gas in the UK”. This morning Decker claimed it was worth it for all the “media coverage”:

“We had media coverage, we had interviews with the media. We had millions of people in the country see the action that we took through this media coverage.”

True, although a large part of that coverage focused on the barrage of fireworks blasted in the pair’s direction by local counter-protesters. Now the war-flare is over, and the duo will be sentenced in two weeks…
