Nottinghamshire Police has welcomed the findings of a report by the Independent Police Complaints Commission surrounding the trial of six environmental protesters who had allegedly conspired to disable Ratcliffe-on-Soar power station three years ago.

The trial, at Nottingham Crown Court, collapsed because of issues surrounding the disclosures of evidence about the undercover officer, known as Mark Stone, who to infiltrated the protest group.
