Deliveries to Rathlin Energy’s East Yorkshire oil and gas exploration site were prevented by protests for a second day this week.
A two-person lock-on protest closed the road to the West Newton well pad from 7.30am-3.30pm today.
Police reportedly left the scene in mid-afternoon. Eye witnesses said the lock-on device was recovered and the road opened. There were no arrests.
On Monday, a campaigner climbed on to the back of a lorry delivering rig equipment. Two people were arrested on suspicion of obstructing the highway and one person for allegedly assaulting a police officer.
Also this week, a person was arrested on suspicion of a public order offence and another was arrested but no action was taken against them.
Police officers were filmed on Monday riding on the side of lorries delivering equipment. They said they were trying to stop protesters climbing onto vehicles in lorry-surfing protests.
Rathlin Energy has written to local people that it is mobilising drilling equipment. Drilling the well, to a depth of about 2,000m, will take about eight weeks, the company said.
