Indea Barbe-Wilson, a 31-year-old resident of Lewisham, has entered a plea of not guilty to charges of wilful obstruction of a highway. The accusation stems from an incident on May 2, where Barbe-Wilson allegedly impeded the free passage along Peckham Road, obstructing a coach destined to transport asylum seekers to the Bibby Stockholm barge.
