Vicar Arrested during protests

Reverend Tim Hewes is part of the 5 activists who have been arrested in Oxfordshire regarding mass climate protests.

The Vicar is part of the Extinction Rebellion Wantage group, who were protesting in the capital fighting for action on climate change. Reverend Hewes is a retired dental surgeon, and was arrested during the protests taking place in the capital earlier this week. He was seen on Channel 4 news on Tuesday, shortly following being handcuffed.

An 81 year old retired woman was also arrested alongside Reverend Hewes.

Last week, other Oxford activists had charges on them dropped and walked free from court, which was also in relation to Extinction Rebellion Protests in April.
