Extinction Rebellion protestors allegedly requested Sun owner Rupert Murdoch be brought to a protest at a newspaper print works, a police officer told the court following disruption to the XR trial as an activist glued himself to the dock.
Six of the protestors accused of taking part in the unlawful protest went on trial at St Albans Magistrates' Court on Monday, accused of the wilful obstruction of the road outside the News Print plant in Broxbourne, Herts, where the Sun is printed.
The first witness in the case to give evidence was PC Josh Wilson, who claimed that protestors asked him to get the Sun owner Rupert Murdoch down to the scene.
It comes as the trial of six extinction rebellion protestors was thrown into disruption this morning when one of the defendants glued his hand to a table in the courtroom.
PC Wilson, who arrived on the scene outside the plant gates on the night of September 4 last year at around 11.30pm, said the road outside the gates was blocked.
