Oxford pair fined over Drones protest damage
6:50pm Thursday 10th October 2013 in News
Two Oxford residents are among six people who have been found guilty of criminal damage during a protest at an RAF base that is used to operate Drone aircraft.
Susan Clarkson, 66, of Bath Street, and Christopher Cole, 49, of Wilkins Road, were accused of damaging a fence at RAF Waddington, in Lincolnshire, on June 3.
They pleaded not guilty on the grounds that they said they were preventing greater crime in Afghanistan.
But they were convicted by Lincoln magistrates, fined £100 and each given a six-month conditional discharge.
