Four Greenpeace activists who climbed the roof of Prime Minister Rishi Sunak's home in North Yorkshire have pleaded not guilty to criminal damage.

Michael Grant, 64, Mathieu Soete, 38, Amy Rugg-Easey, 33, and Alexandra Wilson, 32, appeared at York Magistrates' Court on Thursday.

They were charged following the protest at the house in Kirby Sigston on 3 August last year.

Mr Sunak and his family were on holiday in the US at the time.
