Harefield, UK. 18 February, 2020. One of two environmental activists who locked onto a drilling rig at a HS2 high-speed rail site in the Colne Valley. Another activist, partially-sighted former Paralympic cyclist James Brown, was removed shortly before by National Eviction Team bailiffs. Activists from Stop HS2, Save the Colne Valley and Extinction Rebellion argue that HS2 intend to use the rig to drill into the aquifer which supplies 22% of London’s drinking water, risking contamination.
