Ineos injunction A date has been set for a hearing at the Court of Appeal for legal challenges to the injunction granted to Ineos Upstream outlawing protests against shale gas developments.
The shale gas company, Cuadrilla, issued a warning today at the start of two weeks of anti-fracking direct action by the national group, Reclaim the Power.
Cuadrilla has secured a 40-day injunction against protests at its fracking site near Blackpool.
