9 arrested for trespassing at Vt. Yankee

Posted: Updated:
VERNON, Vt. -

Nine people were arrested for trespassing at Vermont Yankee Wednesday.

The group turned up at the Vermont Yankee offices to speak out against the plant's environmental practices, raising concerns about storage practices, air and water pollution.

Many tell us they've been opposed to the plant for decades-- the oldest person arrested was 94.

Vermont Yankee is scheduled to close late this year.
