Anti-fracking protesters have pitched up outside the offices of a council which took legal action to evict activists from beside a former exploratory drilling site. Around 25 people with nine tents have gathered for a peaceful protest outside County Hall in Chichester, West Sussex.
This week the High Court granted West Sussex County Council a possession order for verges at Balcombe amid concerns protesters were causing a hazard by camping by the busy road. Balcombe was at the centre of anti-fracking protests during the summer as energy firm Cuadrilla conducted test drilling.
