VIDEO: Eviction notice served on anti-fracking protesters

An eviction notice has been served on anti-fracking protesters camped outside an exploratory drilling site in Salford.

The protesters have until tomorrow lunchtime to leave the site at Barton Moss, if they cannot appeal the possession order won today by the landowner Peel Investments.

Some have already decided to leave, but they say the fight against drilling for shale gas continues.
