Greenpeace is turning David Cameron’s constituency home into a fracking site to demonstrate over controversial legislation clearing the way for under-house drilling expected to be announced in the Queen’s Speech later today.
Activists in hard hats and high-vis jackets have turned up on the doorstep of the Prime Minister’s period cottage in the Cotswold hamlet of Dean, Oxfordshire, this morning.
They are now sealing off the property’s front gate with security fencing and hanging a sign reading, ‘We apologise for any inconvenience we may cause while we frack under your home’.
