ID protesters to face court

CAMPAIGNERS arrested during a protest against ID cards at the Carlton Highland Hotel will appear in court later this month.

The "No2ID Nine" – which includes three doctors and one PhD student – were charged with breach of the peace offences following an incident at a Home Office meeting on ID cards at the hotel on Monday.

The protesters – members of the Edinburgh branch of No2ID – are set to appear at Edinburgh Sheriff Court on July 24.

Among those herded into police vans was a four-year-old, who was taken away with his mother.
