In 2007, a Bristol Crown Court jury unanimously acquitted two protesters of conspiring to cause criminal damage

They had broken into an RAF base to sabotage US B-52 bombers, but they argued in court it was in the public interest

"The prosecution conceded only that delaying the bombers would have prevented civilian casualties since it would have allowed people fleeing cities more time to escape."
