Lincoln Magistrates heard the group's actions caused a lockdown at the base for an hour. The group said they were trying to stop drones being sent from the base.

All of the accused were given a conditional discharge for two years and were ordered to pay just over £300 for court fees and to repair the damage to the fence.
