2019 saw a Conservative government withdraw its support from fracking and introduce a moratorium on the process.
The shale gas company, Ineos, has installed new protest injunction notices at its proposed exploration site at Woodsetts in south Yorkshire.
Ineos has told residents in south Yorkshire that the government’s fracking moratorium announced earlier this month does not affect its shale gas plans for the village of Harthill.
For the first time, an injunction against protests at UK oil and gas sites is to be examined at a full trial at the High Court.
