Bury St Edmunds woman denies criminal damage after Extinction Rebellion protest

A Bury St Edmunds woman has appeared in court accused of criminal damage following an Extinction Rebellion protest in Cambridge.

Mandy Leathers, 53, was among 11 people who appeared at Cambridge Magistrates’ Court yesterday charged with various offences.

It follows a week-long Extinction Rebellion protest in Cambridge city centre in February which saw the lawn at Trinity College dug up and wheelbarrows of mud dumped into Barclays Bank.

In connection with the Schlumberger building incident on February 18, Leathers, of Springfield Avenue, Bury St Edmunds, pleaded not guilty to criminal damage and will appear in court again on September 15.
