AN 83-YEAR-OLD Patchway man is among the Extinction Rebellion protestors to have appeared in court following protests at London tube stations.

Phillip Kingston, of Blakeney Road, appeared at Highbury Corner Magistrates' Court on Friday charged with obstructing an engine or carriage on the railway

When asked to confirm his nationality, he said: "I can only describe myself as a citizen of the world."

Zahid Hussain, prosecuting, told the court: "When police attended Mr Kingston was standing to the rear of the stationary train.

"His hand was on the train and he indicated to the police that he had glued his hand to the train.

"When he was removed he was found to be in possession of superglue that was found in his pocket."

Mike Schwarz (CORR), Kingston's solicitor did not ask for bail.

Speaking on the OAP's behalf, said: "He thinks that radical action is required by all.

"He does not accept that situation and for the sake of his grandchildren wishes to assert his concerns as strongly as possible."

However, the court granted him bail and also ordered him not to travel on the DLR or enter Southwark, Westminster, or Lambeth.

Kingston, and three others allegedly involved in the protests at Shadwell tube station, were bailed to appear at Inner London Crown Court on November 19.
