Two charged over airbase trespass
Two men have been charged by police after being arrested at RAF Fairford on suspicion of aggravated trespass on Wednesday night.

A 17-year-old from Powys in Wales and 22-year-old from Leamington Spa have been charged with possession of an article with intent to destroy, obstructing persons engaged in lawful activity and criminal damage.

They will appear before Cheltenham magistrates on Friday.

The arrests are the latest in a series at the airbase where 14 American B-52 bombers have been based since early March.

Gloucestershire Police say 58 people have been arrested at the base since the end of January.
