Two anti-abortion campaigners are facing criminal prosecution for displaying graphic images of an aborted foetus during a street protest.
Andy Stephenson and Kathryn Sloane will stand trial in what their supporters say will be a landmark case concerning freedom of expression.
The pair were arrested in June last year outside Wistons abortion clinic in Brighton, after they refused to take down a 7ft by 5ft illustrated banner.
They will appear before magistrates in September after the Crown Prosecution Service authorised charges against them.
