Anti-fracking campaigners face eviction from their protest camp near Blackpool, as energy firm Cuadrilla has launched legal proceeding to boot them off.
Cuadrilla said it, alongside local farmers, has served a claim for possession against demonstrators who have occupied farmland in Little Plumpton.
Around 250 protesters were reported to have moved into the site Preston New Road two weeks ago.
While most of them have now moved out, Cuadrilla says a hardcore of around 15 remain there.
The energy firm branded the activists "illegal trespassers" and said they were damaging the farmer's business.
