A HEREFORDSHIRE woman has been banned from Kent ahead of her appearance at the crown court over M25 protest allegations.

Cressida Gethin appeared before magistrates in Westminster in February accused of one count of conspiring to intentionally or recklessly cause a public nuisance.


The court heard from the prosecutor that the 21-year-old is accused of, without reasonable excuse, conspiring with others to cause widespread disruption to the M25.

It is alleged that she and others had planned a protest on the overhead gantry, and that obstructed the public in the exercise of a right.

The case was sent to the crown court, and Gethin was released on bail with conditions to abide by an electronically monitored curfew and not to enter Kent except to attend court or for pre-arranged appointments with her solicitor.

Gethin, of The Southend, Ledbury, will appear before Southwark Crown Court on February 22.
