Anti-Hinkley campaigner dies at 66
7:00pm Tuesday 9th October 2012 in News
LEADING anti-nuclear campaigner Crispin Aubrey has died aged 66.
Former journalist Mr Aubrey, of Nether Stowey, came to national prominence when he was arrested under the Official Secrets Act in 1977 while working at Time Out.
The subsequent so-called ABC trial was named after the three defendants – Aubrey, former soldier John Berry and investigative journalist Duncan Campbell.
The trio were convicted on a lesser charge and given non-custodial sentences after appearing at the Old Bailey in 1978.
In his later years Mr Aubrey joined the Stop Hinkley campaign group.
