First published in News

The daughter of The Pretenders singer Chrissie Hynde and Ray Davies of The Kinks has broken years of silence to support the treetop protest against a controversial link road.

Natalie Hynde, from Hastings, spent her 30th birthday yesterday being photographed by the press after three decades of protecting her “precious” anonymity.

She has spent almost every night since Boxing Day sleeping in a tent or treehouse with people protesting against the Bexhill to Hastings link road.

She said: “Building the road isn’t a solution. It’s just an environmental disaster.

“I see it as quite plain and simple.

“It’s an experience and I encourage people to come and join us.”

The protesters are hoping the High Court will stop the building of the road, arguing that they believe it goes through the original site of the Battle of Hastings in 1066.

I used to like Chrissy Hynde until she started opening her ill informed mouth on political issues.
Just sing. That's what you're good at.

She can afford to protest. I'm sure her mum makes sure she has lots of ' Brass in pocket'. Sorry just could not resist.

Best to leave it a bit longer next time, Natalie, before breaking your silence again.
