Protesters gear up for mass trespass

Protesters from across the country are gathering in Somerset as part of a weekend of demonstrations against a planned nuclear power station.

Hundreds are expected to assemble in Kings Square, Bridgwater this afternoon where protesters will march through the town.

The procession comes ahead of a planned 'mass trespass' at the site of the Hinkley C power plant on Monday. Demonstrators are expected to scale the fences, and a camp has already started to form at North Wick Moor.

The Stop New Nuclear Alliance expects there will be a number of arrests.
