Nine people have been charged with aggravated trespass following an anti-war protest on the roof of a factory in Staffordshire.
12 members of the London Palestine Action group climbed to the top of UAV Engines in Shenstone on Tuesday.

The police operation at the site continues.
A man has been jailed for six years for attempting to hire a hit man to kill his wife.
Graham Burgess, 45, agreed to pay £10,000 to a man he thought was a hit man. Staffordshire Police became aware of his plans and deployed a police officer posing as a contract killer.
Warren Stanier, Senior Crown Prosecutor from the West Midlands CCU, said:
Throughout this prosecution Graham Burgess maintained that he knew the ‘hit man’ was an undercover police officer and that he only continued with the meetings and discussions for the thrill of the experience. However, by his own admission this was not the case.
The Complex Casework Unit worked closely with Staffordshire Police to ensure that Mr Burgess was brought to justice. Whilst the motive behind these plans may never be fully known what is clear is that Burgess encouraged his partner to take out a substantial life insurance policy shortly before all of this happened.
It is hoped that the conclusion of the case may bring some closure to what can only have been a very harrowing experience for the intended victim and her family.
