Former Paralympian denies climate protest charges
Former Paralympic cyclist James Brown has denied causing a public nuisance after he was alleged to have climbed on top of an aircraft at London City Airport on Thursday during the Extinction Rebellion protests. Protesters applauded from the public gallery in the court and welcomed Mr Brown outside following the hearing. The 55-year-old was granted conditional bail, prohibiting him from going within one mile of any airport in the UK and will appear at Southwark Crown Court in November for trial. Report by Etemadil.
