An anti-HS2 sign is pictured outside Uxbridge Magistrates Court on 15th December 2021 in London, United Kingdom. Two environmental campaigners, partially-sighted former Paralympian James Brown and fellow activist 'Jimmy', were appearing in court charged with criminal damage after allegedly climbing a drilling rig to be used for the HS2 high-speed rail project in February 2020 in order to raise awareness of risks from the infrastructure work to London's water supply from the chalk aquifer below the Colne Valley. The case was adjourned until February 2022.
