THE last remaining anti-HS2 activist in a network of tunnels in London’s Euston Square Gardens was removed this morning.
He raised two fingers in a peace sign as he was carried away to an ambulance. A crowd gathered nearby cheered and shouted “We love you Bradley.”
A total of nine protesters have been removed from the tunnels since they were discovered on January 26.
Activist Dr Larch Maxey, who spent 27 days underground, said: “We’ve helped to shift awareness of the climate and ecological emergency, really taken things to a new level and also awareness of HS2 and its role in accelerating that.”
He added that the last protester, known as Bradley, would feel “very proud, I should think, and relieved and grateful for being back up top.”
HS2 Limited, the government-owned company building the high-speed railway, said in a statement that its staff had “acted with safety as their utmost priority” and risked their own lives to ensure the wellbeing of those in the tunnels.
