A campaigner from Hull was remanded in custody by a court in the city today following a protest against local drilling for oil and gas.
The only two campaigners arrested during four months of protests outside Egdon’s oil exploration site at Biscathorpe in Lincolnshire were found not guilty yesterday (1 August 2019).
Anti-fracking campaigner Helen Chuntso reports on an investigation into the sale of Third Energy’s onshore gas business. She examines the importance of the deal for funding decommissioning – an issue now attracting cross-party political attention.
Three anti-fracking campaigners have been found in contempt of court for taking part in a protest outside Cuadrilla’s shale gas site in Lancashire.
The judgement in the first trial of anti-fracking protesters accused of breaching an injunction at a shale gas site is not expected until the end of the week.
An environmental campaigner has told the High Court she breached the injunction at Cuadrilla’s shale gas site near Blackpool because she was “terrified” about the damage fracking would do to her community.
Friends of the Earth has launched legal proceedings to try to force Cuadrilla to “substantially reduce” the scale of its injunction against anti-fracking protests.
