Events in August 2019 and beyond about UK fracking, onshore oil and gas and campaigning
Friends of the Earth has launched legal proceedings to try to force Cuadrilla to “substantially reduce” the scale of its injunction against anti-fracking protests.
Three anti-fracking campaigners are due in court tomorrow (Tuesday) in what is believed to be the first trial for an alleged breach of a protest injunction granted to a UK onshore oil or gas company.
Policing at two IGas shale gas sites in Nottinghamshire has cost nearly a million pounds, campaigners have revealed.
A court in Blackpool ruled today there was no case to answer against nine anti-fracking activists who took part in the longest lock-on protest outside Cuadrilla’s shale gas site.
A Nottinghamshire man accused of interfering with equipment used to explore for shale gas has been found not guilty of offences under the Computer Misuse Act.
An anti-fracking protest that lasted nearly 100 hours caused travel disruption and incurred extra costs for Lancashire Police and the shale gas company, Preston Crown Court heard this afternoon.
