The director of public prosecutions, Kier Starmer, has advised 20 climate activists to appeal against their convictions.

They were convicted of plotting to break into a power station in 2009.

But the convictions took place while undercover police officer Mark Kennedy had infiltrated the group.

Kennedy was said to have played a key role in orchestrating the plan.

The police are also suspected of suppressing evidence because of what it may reveal about Kennedy’s involvement.
