Getting away with it?

Two protestors from the Stop New Nuclear Mass Trespass at Hinkley Point Somerset who had been bailed to Bridgwater police station were released on Monday without charge, despite the fact that one of them had been arrested in possession of a set of boltcroppers as they made for the fence in order to cut through it.
