The cost of policing the on-going protest at the Cuadrilla oil-drilling site at Balcombe has now reached an estimated £2.381m. This figure is estimated to be the total cost for the operation up to Thursday September 5.
Superintendent Lawrence Hobbs said: "We will continue to remain open and transparent about the cost to Sussex Police. Officers remain at the site facilitating peaceful and safe protest. Those who break the law will continue to be arrested and we will do all we can to put them in front of a court."
