Campaigners aiming to save trees Sheffield have announced that they won't appeal against a High Court ruling preventing them from protesting.

The High Court judge backed Sheffield Council in its battle to stop three objectors - including Green Party councillor Alison Teal - from taking 'direct action' by protesting inside safety barriers erected around trees whilst contractors are working.

But, Sheffield tree campaigners have said they will continue their fight against felling despite a judge granting injunctions against three people.
