Sherwood Forest Protest …. and now the court cases.

Nottingham Evening Post story

12:00 – 14 December 2004

Four people arrested during a dawn police raid to remove protesters from woodland earmarked for development have appeared in court.

Around 100 police officers, specialist tree climbers and housing company staff staged the action earlier this month to remove protesters from treehouses on woodland at the junction of Sherwood Rise and Debdale Lane, Mansfield Woodhouse.

Four people appeared at Mansfield Magistrates’ Court yesterday, each charged with obstructing a court officer in the execution of his duty.

The cases of David Thomas, 32, and Gareth Williams, 25, of Debdale Gate, Mansfield Woodhouse; Daniel Wilson, 26, of Denor Drive, Mansfield Woodhouse, and Robert Buchanan, 26, of Stanton Lees, Matlock, were adjourned until next month. They were all given conditional bail.
