Anti-fracking protesters at a drill site in Salford have until midday today to vacate their camp or be evicted.
A judge granted a possession order to landowners Peel Holdings yesterday.
The protesters have been camped at the site since last November protesting against iGas who are test drilling for shale gas.
Their demonstrations have triggered a large scale police operation to ensure trucks, equipment and staff can reach the drill site.
