Manchester Airport invaded by activists

Fresh from bringing an inflatable elephant to last Wednesday’s post-election City Council meeting, activists from Manchester Climate Action and Manchester Plane Stupid have broken into the freight terminal of Manchester Airport and chained themselves to the wheel of a plane.

Protesters have cut through a perimeter fence at Manchester Airport and chained themselves to the wheels of a plane.

Members of the group Manchester Plane Stupid are demonstrating against the expansion of the World Freight Centre.

A spokesman for the airport said six people cut a hole in the fence and flights were suspended for 20 minutes following the security breach.

Police are currently working on removing the protesters, who started their demonstration at about 0700 BST.

As per the latest MCFly’s calendar, the next meeting of Manchester Climate Action takes place this Wednesday, 26 May, starting at 7.30pm at the Bowling Green Pub, Grafton St.

MCFly will be there, and doubtless there will be some new faces, complete with inquisitive minds.
