Police Shut Down Big Green Gathering

I was one of about 15,000 people looking forward to spending five days in the Mendip Hills at the annual Big Green Gathering. I was going to be there as part of a ten strong Bicycology crew and we had put considerable time and effort into planning for it. A license had been granted back in June but the event was cancelled at short notice yesterday after Mendip District Council threatened the organisers with a High Court injunction.

Update – although I have seen nothing about this on the BBC, at least the Guardian is covering the unfolding story.
