HS2 Eviction of Jone's Hill Woods goes ahead

After months of protests and bitter nights spent camping up in the trees, Jone's Hill Wood has finally been cleared of activists. The ancient woodland is set to be demolished to make way for the HS2 railway later this year.

Police were sent in to remove protesters including Steve Masters, a West Berkshire Councillor and one of the earliest campers on site, as well as 'Swampy the Eco Warrior' who rose to fame some 20 years ago when he tunnelled under a bypass to protest against it's construction.
