Three men who took part in anti-HS2 protests in Denham Country Park have been convicted.

Sebastian Roblyn, 20, Jack Oliver, 23, and Dominic Gillett, 24, all of no fixed address, were found guilty of hindering the use of workers' tools on Tuesday, March 16.

At an anti-HS2 protest on July 9 and 10 last year in Denham Country Park, Roblyn and Gillett climbed up a large tree, while Oliver was in the River Colne in a bid to prevent work being carried out.

When Roblyn and Gillett climbed down voluntarily on July 9, they were both arrested.

The next day, when HS2 workers returned to the site, Oliver was found perched in the tree.

He was removed and arrested.

All three were found guilty of a single count each of 241 Trades Union and Labour Relations Act 1992 - hindering the use of workers' tools at High Wycombe Magistrates' Court after a two-day trial last week.

Roblyn must pay a surcharge of £22 and court costs of £300, and Gillett and Oliver must each pay a £34 surcharge, were fined £120 and must pay court costs of £300.

A Thames Valley Police spokesman said: “Roblyn, Oliver and Gillett prevented the legal work of HS2 being carried out by climbing a large tree and being situated in the River Colne.

“We hope that these convictions demonstrate that police will take action where necessary and bring people to court if they break the law.”
