Three anti-fracking campaigners who breached a protest injunction could be vindicated by recent earth tremors in Lancashire, the High Court was told today.
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.
Cuadrilla seeks injunction over “imminent protest threat” – campaigners question the evidence and claim human rights breach
Cuadrilla told the High Court today it faced an imminent protest threat to its Lancashire fracking site. But a group of environmental campaigners denied there had been an escalation in action at the site and accused Cuadrilla of submitting evidence based on ‘snippets taken out of context’.
