The environmentalists who were arrested during the F1 British GP for track invasion, were placed in the court for further proceedings.

There was a message from the police before the F1 British GP requesting the protesters to not take matter in their hands and get themselves involved in any way during the grand prix. Despite that, six people managed to jump onto the circuit.

The incident took place on Lap 1 when the British GP was red-flagged for the incident involving Alfa Romeo’s Zhou Guanyu. On their way to the Wellington Straight, several F1 drivers reported of seeing people on track which they had to avoid.

The fortunate red flag helped them to remain at a slow pace rather than their usual high-speed situation. The six people were immediately arrested and taken into custody. They were wearing orange tracksuits with a message of ‘Just Stop Oil’.

The six people were David Baldwin, 46, Emily Brocklebank, 23, Alasdair Gibson, 21, Louis McKechnie, 21, Bethany Mogie, 40, and Joshua Smith, 29. They have been charged with ‘conspiracy to cause public nuisance’ at Northampton Crown Court on Friday.

From among them, McKechnie and Smith were remanded into custody ahead of a plea hearing on October 3, while Baldwin, Bracklebank and Gibson were granted bail until the same date.
