Activists Block Coal Train in the UK

Fifty Greenpeace UK activists stop and occupy a freight train delivering 1,500 tonnes of coal to one of Britain’s most polluting power stations, as British Prime Minister David Cameron attends a high-profile climate summit in New York. The activists use industry-standard emergency signals to flag down the 400-metre-long coal train as it was slowing down along rail sidings leading to Cottam power station in Nottinghamshire.
