Dartford Crossing protestors lose Supreme Court appeal

two Just Stop Oil protesters have lost their Supreme Court appeals against jail sentences for scaling the bridge the Dartford Crossing.

Morgan Trowland, 40, and Marcus Decker, 34, were jailed after using ropes and other climbing gear to scale the Queen Elizabeth II Bridge, causing gridlock when police closed it to traffic last October.

In July, the protesters lost an appeal over what their lawyers said were the “extraordinary length” of Trowland’s three-year sentence and Decker’s jail term of two years and seven months.

London’s Evening Standard Newspaper quotes Court of Appeal staff confirming that judges have refused to grant permission for the two men to take their case to the UK’s highest court.
