Anti-fracking campaigners are vowing to stay in Balcombe until the exploratory drilling site is closed. Police served protesters with an eviction notice this week and are now waiting for a court order to remove them. Planning permission for the drilling ends at the end of the month.
West Sussex County Council have begun legal proceedings to evict protesters from Balcombe. They're seeking an order to remove campaigners from London Road, close to the Cuadrilla site. An eviction notice was served yesterday but some anti-fracking campaigners still remain at the site.
