Below a few mobile phone snaps of the events today as the Hampshire Constabulary in large numbers helped Vestas to move wind turbine blades from the blockaded factory at Newport, Isle of Wight. They had broken up the protest camp at the Marine Gate in the morning, and controlled the cyclepath from Newport to Cowes to help Vestas load a number of blades onto a Blade Runner barge.
What you can see in the first picture is just one part of the police presence. More like these were beyond the fence that you can see, stopping people coming from Cowes to Newport. Many more were on the jetty and on the river. Many more were stationed at the roundabout. Many more were patrolling the area.
