Protesters stage 'slow walk' outside fracking site

Protesters held a 20-minute 'slow walk' protest in front of a convoy of lorries

Protesters have held a 20-minute 'slow walk' protest in front of a convoy of lorries at Kirby Misperton this morning.

A group of about 10 protesters walked in the middle of the road in front of a lorry-mounted crane and two tankers after they had left the hydraulic fracturing site on Habton Road.

Every day, officers will engage with the protest community, and clearly explain what is safe and reasonable.

We will support and protect those engaged in peaceful protest, while at the same time balancing the rights of others to go about their lawful business.

– Superintendent Lindsey Robson, North Yorkshire Police
