A CLIMATE-JUSTICE activist who spent almost a month in the HS2 tunnel protest near London’s Euston station was evicted by bailiffs yesterday.
Larch Maxey, a geography lecturer, had his belongings confiscated and said in a video message that he felt fine but had been advised to go to hospital by paramedics.
The activist is now the fifth protester to leave the tunnel under Euston Square Gardens, dug in secret to withstand the construction of HS2, which campaigners claim will cause environmental devastation across the country.
In his video message, Mr Maxey said he had decided to come out after bailiffs “rinsed me completely.”
An HS2 Ltd spokesperson said Mr Maxey had been handed to the Metropolitan Police and is likely to face “criminal charges for aggravated trespass” as well as penalties for breaches of a High Court order.
On Friday a judge granted HS2 an injunction against the remaining tunnel activists but refused to grant a possession order.
