Greenpeace activists have used a life-size polar bear puppet to stop a coal train heading for Nottinghamshire's Cottam power station.
The charity says the "highly realistic, life-size, moving polar bear puppet - previously used in National Theatre productions - has just walked up to the front of the locomotive, where it’s now stopping the train from moving."
The animal is intended to symbolise the global movement to save the Arctic from climate change, which is mainly driven by coal.

A report has found there is a case to answer for misconduct after a soldier from Nottinghamshire was knocked down and killed by a police car in Surrey.
Surrey Police have received their own copy of the IPCC report into Joshua Brown's death and are considering what action to take.
A force spokesman said: "Surrey Police has recently received the IPCC report into the circumstances surrounding a fatal collision on the A31 Hog's Back on 1 December 2012.
"The force still awaits a copy of the IPCC investigation file upon which the report is based. Once this is received it will be reviewed by officers from the Professional Standards Department to determine the most appropriate course of action."
The mother of a young soldier from Nottinghamshire who was knocked down and killed by a police car says she is relieved a report has found there is a case to answer for misconduct.
Joshua Brown was 21 when he was struck on the A31 Hog's Back in Surrey in December 2012. It was in the early hours of the morning. The patrol car was travelling at 82 miles an hour in thick fog and the officer at the wheel was not using his siren or flashing blue lights.
Joshua's mother, Sam Eadington, who lives in Ordsall near Retford, has been given the findings of an investigation by the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC). The watchdog says there is a case to answer for misconduct and has passed on its recommendations to Surrey Police.
Mrs Eadington hopes the tragedy will lead to improved training for police officers when driving at night or in poor weather conditions.
An inquest into her son's death is expected to take place later this year.
A health trust has apologised for communications failings in the handling of a man with depression who took his own life before mental health professionals could help him. A coroner heard how an urgent referral about Alvan Brown from Retford was faxed to the wrong number and ignored for five days.

The family of a man with a history of depression who took his own life are considering suing the NHS after hearing his urgent treatment was delayed by communications errors within the health system.
