Five Just Stop Oil protesters have been found guilty of aggravated trespass after they stormed a performance of Les Misérables in London's West End.

Two of the activists were also found guilty of criminal damage after standing on the theatre's orchestra pit netting.

The show at Sondheim Theatre was halted at 21:00 GMT on 5 October 2023, Westminster Magistrates' Court heard.

The estimated cost to the theatre of cancelling the performance was £60,000.

The protesters entered the stage during a performance of Do You Hear The People Sing? and locked themselves to the set. The "angry" audience of around 1,000 people was asked to leave the auditorium and the performance was brought to a halt around an hour later after police removed the activists...
