A Greenpeace activist from London has said today the group will "for sure" continue to stage oil rig protests despite 30 activists being taken prisoner by Russian authorities.
Speaking on Sky News this morning, Frank Hewetson said: "I think it will happen again for sure. I'm just not going to comment about whether it will happen in Russia, I just don't have the mental head space to make that sort of decision at the moment."
"But I personally want to go back to part of the Arctic."

A London journalist arrested in Russia has been granted bail after spending 2 months in jail.
Kieron Bryan was one of six Britons detained by the Russian authorities during a Greenpeace protest against drilling in the Arctic.
Today's news could be a sign Russia is softening its position on their case, but they will still have to face trial. Here's Luke Farrington.

It's amazing news to know that Kieron will be released from prison soon. We have been thinking of him every minute of every day and we can't wait to speak to him and see him.
Our relief is obviously tempered by the fact that he is still facing absurd charges, despite the fact that he was just doing his job.
This isn't over for him or the others involved and we hope that these charges will be dropped soon so that he can carry on with his life without this terrible uncertainty hanging over him.
