Two people from Stroud have been charged following on from the Extinction Rebellion protests in Bristol last week.

Avon and Somerset Police released a statement on Thursday, revealing that arrests were expected after the M32 was blocked by activists.

Now though, the names of the 16 people arrested and charged have been revealed.

Amongst the names are Jane Augsburger, 54, of Summer Street, Stroud and Benjamin Misrahi, 23, of West End, Stroud.

Both pleaded not guilty of wilfully obstructing a public highway and trials will now be held on 4,9 and 11 September.
