Three campaigners are occupying a work-over rig at Kirby Misperton in North Yorkshire to protest over controversial plans to frack at the Third Energy site.
The campaigners got ono the site on Habton Road and scaled the 60ft metal construction last night. Its the latest action protestors have taken outside the proposed fracking site, after equipment needed for the controversial gas extraction began to move on site more than two weeks ago.
The campaigners said in a statement on their Facebook page they felt compelled to stand against the industry.
Third Energy said the company 'strongly condemns' the action and added it has 'serious health and safety consequences' .
