An activist has stopped work at a Queensland export terminal by suspending himself from machinery, one day after protesters disrupted trains from the controversial Carmichael coal mine.
Police have been trying to remove Paul Jukes from a coal stacking machine at the North Queensland Export Terminal north of Bowen since 5am on Wednesday.
Work by Adani's Bravus Mining and Resources was stopped on the site as a safety precaution but started again at 7.30am.

Dukes and his group, Frontline Action on Coal, have vowed to keep resisting mining giant Adani, which owns the export terminal at Abbot Point
"This morning an anti-fossil fuel activist put his life at risk and wasted police time when he suspended himself from a stacker reclaimer at our Abbot Point coal export terminal,"
