Nearly 70 people have been arrested at a protest outside a coat-fired power plant in New Hampshire.

The activists were arrested on Saturday on charges of trespassing on the grounds of the Merrimack Station.

More than 200 protesters turned out for the rally and called for the coal-fired plant to be shut down. The protest came at the end of a week of climate demonstrations around the world calling for governments to do more to reduce carbon emissions.
