Bulwell man’s anti-drone protest


A man from Bulwell is among four protestors who have been charged with criminal damage after a wire was cut at an RAF base.

The End The Drone Wars protesters were arrested at RAF Waddington in Lincolnshire on Monday during a protest over the use of armed drones.

Gary Eagling (52), of Bakewell Drive, was released on bail and will appear at Lincoln Magistrates on 10th February, along with people from Oxford, Coventry and Leicester, who were also charged with obstructing a person engaged in a lawful activity.

The group were protesting about the use of armed drones, controlled from the base, which they claim cause civilian casualties.
