"I am hunger striking as I have eight grandchildren all aged 5 and under, and I want them to have a better world to grow up in.

"This will only happen if governments move to protect our environment now! This hunger strike is the least I can do.

"I plan to be outside, or inside, Ely Cathedral most of these days at lunch time, except Sunday when I will be there from 9.30 until 11am."
