Well, I've worn some interesting outfits in my time but never a cardboard washing machine!

A few of the Preston group spent a couple of hours outside Curry's asking the public to send messages to Siemens not to build a dam that will destroy not only the ecosystem but the home of indigenous people.

The weather was very kind to us - despite the 4 degree temperature, the sun was a welcome bonus.

The staff at Curry's were very welcoming and stated that, as long as we weren't protesting against them, we were fine to stand outside the store.

The public were very responsive and engaged well with the action - a fab morning!
