Most anti-fracking protesters stay put

Most protesters I spoke to said they will be leaving the camp at 12pm tomorrow if their appeal is unsuccessful. Until then though they're stating put, with only a few signs of people packing their things and preparing to leave.

But everyone I spoke to insist they're not leaving the local area altogether. They say they willsimply set up camp somewhere else in the community, and return to Barton Moss everyday to protest against fracking.
