Woman in court over bail breaches related to disruption at Thurrock fuel sites

A woman has appeared in court in connection with bail breaches related to disruption caused by protesters at fuel sites in Thurrock.

Stephanie Aylett, 27, of High Oaks, St Albans, was arrested on Friday April 22 on suspicion of breaching bail conditions imposed after she had appeared in court the previous day charged with aggravated trespass.

At the hearing at Southend Magistrates’ Court, Aylett was made subject of the following bail conditions:
1. Not to enter Essex except for court appearances
2. Live and sleep at an address in Harpenden
3. Curfew of 19:00 – 07:00 daily
4. To have an electronic tag fitted. She was ordered to remain in the premises from 17:00 – 23:00 until the tag was fitted

She is next due to appear at Chelmsford Magistrates’ Court on May 24.

In total, police have charged 23 people in connection with incidents of disruption across the Thurrock district since April 1.

Over the weekend Thurrock Council was granted an injunction preventing protestors from blocking roads or impeding vehicles at key fuel terminals across the borough.
