Police cause holiday havoc - and blame protesters

But it did result in 60 or 70 people leaving the camp to give support.

Police force climate camp march to Heathrow airport and block A4...

15-08-2007 19:49

Still penned in on all side by police, they were then forced across the main A4 road (which police closed for some time before forcing the people across it) and then right up to the security fence of Heathrow where they were held for over one hour.
