The shale gas company, Cuadrilla, has been accused of an “aggressive and sustained” pursuit of court costs of more than £55,000 against the leading anti-fracking campaigner, Tina Rothery. Lawyers for Cuadrilla have accused Ms Rothery of “persisting in inaccurately portraying” the legal process.
This week’s diary features a court case involving anti-fracking campaigner, Tina Rothery, plus two county council meetings, a training course, presentation, film screening, climate action assembly and a media festival.

Cuadrilla announced today that it is moving its headquarters to Bamber Bridge, south-east of Preston, in Lancashire. The move is expected to be early in 2016.
