LONG STANDING ANTI NUCLEAR CAMPAIGNER DIES
29 September 2012
It is with huge sadness that Stop Hinkley announces the untimely death of Crispin Aubrey.
The Stop Hinkley campaign is coming to terms with the news that spokesperson Crispin Aubrey suffered a fatal heart attack on Friday afternoon in the midst of the preparations for the planned protest against Hinkley C next weekend.
Crispin played a key role in the preparations and was due to speak at the rally next Saturday. Crispin's wife Sue, also part of the Stop Hinkley campaign, has bravely requested that the ‘show must go on because it's what Crispin would have wanted'.
The family have requested that you do not send flowers, but you may wish to make a donation to Stop Hinkley. Donations can be sent to

The Aubreys were involved in the original protest against Hinkley C over twenty years ago. Crispin took a lead role in the public enquiry and coordinated the campaign which was heralded a success as the reactor was never built.
Crispin was a life-long campaigner and had been a journalist all his working life, starting at the Hampshire Chronicle and London's Time Out magazine. He wrote widely on environmental issues and was committed to the promotion of renewable energy.
Crispin was a well respected contributor to the Stop Hinkley campaign and to the fight against new nuclear in the UK.
