A protest camp is being set up in Oxfordshire as part of a 'global weekend of action'.

Didcot Power Station will see the No Dash for Gas group stage the demonstrating from today until Tuesday.

Police have been told and say they will work towards a peaceful protest with minimal impact on local people.

"Thames Valley Police will be working closely with its partners, including the RWE and those wishing to protest, in order to minimise the impact of the protest on the local communities and fulfil our legal responsibility to facilitate peaceful protest. We respect everyone's right to protest in a way which is non-violent protest against people or property. However, should activity go beyond peaceful, those breaking the law will be dealt with proportionately. Measures are in place to notify local residents and those who might be affected by the protests, and our aim is to ensure that there is minimal disruption caused to them and the wider community of Didcot, and the surrounding areas, while facilitating protest. However, it is highly likely that there will be some disruption to the area. People should remain vigilant and take appropriate measures to secure access to open land."
