Friends of the Earth is going to the High Court this morning to challenge a key consent which allows Cuadrilla to drill and frack for shale gas near Blackpool.
Lancashire’s Police and Crime Commissioner has called on the Government to reconsider its decision to contribute only 20% of the cost so far in policing anti-fracking protests outside Cuadrilla’s shale gas site near Blackpool.
A High Court judge ruled this morning that an interim injunction sought by INEOS against anti-fracking protesters should continue. See DrillOrDrop breaking news.
Opponents of fracking are becoming over-cautious to avoid breaching an injunction granted to theUK’s biggest shale gas company, the High Court heard today.
