A woman who spent 24 hours on a lorry delivering equipment to Cuadrilla’s shale gas site near Blackpool came down at about 10pm last night. The protest began on Sunday evening when the lorry was parked at motorway services at Forton on the A6 between Lancaster and Preston. The woman, who spent a night and the following day on the cab roof, said she was “a bit cold” and “sorry to come down”. Another woman, who locked herself to equipment on the lorry’s trailer, came off at about 1pm yesterday afternoon. Both were arrested and charged under the Trades Union and Labour Relations Consolidation Act. They are due to appear at Preston Magistrates Court on 25 April 2018.

Photo: Still from video by Morgan Marshall Two women locked themselves together outside the depot of the haulage company, AMPS, in Great Yarmouth in Norfolk yesterday. The action blocked the entrance and prevented lorries leaving and entering the depot. Anti-fracking campaigners said they believed the company was transporting equipment to Cuadrilla’s shale gas site at Preston New Road, near Blackpool. The protest ended when the woman, whose arms were locked inside a tube, walked away from the entrance. DrillOrDrop understands they were not arrested.
