Eco-battle set for High Court

The High Court looks set to be the latest venue for the much-hyped eco-battle currently taking place at Epsom in Surrey. After a preliminary vacation hearing before Mr Justice Astill, the case gained wide media coverage because of "General Survival" – the 11-year-old, near illiterate boy photographed in combat gear, said to be heading the fight against road-builders. The case is scheduled to return to court in October.
