TheWorldTonight: Police guard power station.

A HUGE police presence is in place to deal with protesters who have vowed to close down Britain's biggest coal-fired power station.

Hundreds of demonstrators set up camp at the weekend about two miles from Drax power station, in North Yorkshire.

Organisers have planned a day of "creative mass action" for today to close down the huge site, which they say is the UK's biggest single emitter of carbon dioxide.

North Yorkshire police have brought in reinforcements from other forces to protect the power station, between Selby and Goole.
