Demonstrators have gathered outside a petrol station in Exeter as part of the campaign by Greenpeace to free a group of activists being held in Russia.

They claim Shell is complicit in the detention because it's a partner of the state-backed Russian oil company Gazprom.

Three people from Devon are among 30 awaiting trial following a protest at a drilling rig in the Arctic.

Greenpeace activists Kieron Bryan and Alex Harris from Devon have been freed on bail in Russia. They were among 30 arrested two months ago after an Arctic oil rig protest. Another Devon detainee - Iain Rogers - is likely to be bailed soon.
