Protesters brought Grangemouth docks to a standstill in a demonstration against plans for a wood-burning power station.

Members of Action Against Agrofuels chained themselves to a tripod, which they had constructed themselves, blocking one of two entrances to the Forth Port docks.

A human chain was formed by protesters at the other entrance, blocking the road from around 7.45am on Monday. A large number of officers from Central Scotland Police were called in to deal with around 20 activists.

The Grangemouth docks was closed to all traffic while the peaceful protest took place.
