Twenty environmental campaigners accused of trying to shut down Ratcliffe-on-Soar coal-fired power station have denied the charges.

The protesters are charged with conspiring to commit aggravated trespass in April 2009.

All 20 men and women admitted they were protesting but deny the charges on the grounds their actions were necessary in the fight against climate change.

More than 1,000 people took part in the protest at the Nottinghamshire plant.

The trial continues at Nottingham Crown Court.
