Three people charged after Greenpeace protest at PM’s home

Three people have been charged with criminal damage after a Greenpeace protest at Prime Minister Rishi Sunak’s home.

A statement from North Yorkshire Police said the man and two women facing the charges were Mathieu Soete, 38, Amy Rugg-Easey, 33, and Alexandra Wilson, 32.

It comes after the climate change group carried out a demonstration at Mr Sunak’s home in North Yorkshire last August.

Rosemary Ainslie, head of the CPS Special Crime Division, said: “Following a review of the evidence provided by North Yorkshire Police, we have authorised criminal charges against one man and two women after a protest at the home of Prime Minister Rishi Sunak on 3 August 2023.”

The three people charged will appear at York Magistrates’ Court on 21 March.
