Woman arrested after South Norfolk District Council offices are doused in pink paint
A council office was doused in paint this week as part of a protest against the government’s handling of the climate change crisis.
Nicola Stickles, 50, has been arrested and released under investigation following the incident in which the entrance to the South Norfolk District Council office in Long Stratton was doused in pink paint at around 3pm on Monday.
The 50-year-old has been released under investigation, and an environmentalist group called Burning Pink have claimed responsibility for the incident.
The group said: “We are demanding immediate action on the climate emergency, a year-long, legally-binding citizens’ assembly, and that all local councillors engage in necessary civil resistance against the central government.”
However, a spokesperson for the council expressed their frustration at the incident. They said: “We take the dangers of climate change very seriously and has led the fight against fly tipping and environmental crime.
“We find the actions taken by Burning Pink disappointing.”
