Newbury bypass protest figures reunited after 20 years

In January 1996 an army of eco warriors became national news when they took to the trees in Newbury to try and prevent the construction of a bypass.

To mark the anniversary, BBC South has reunited both sides of the argument to hear their views 20 years on.

Among the key players were the Under Sherriff of Berkshire Nicholas Blandy and protester Phillip Pritchard.
