Green Party MP Caroline Lucas said she remained "deeply concerned" about the impact of fracking after confirming she had been charged for her part in protests.
– Caroline Lucas
Sussex police have today confirmed I am being charged with two offences arising out of my arrest in Balcombe on August 19.
One of the offences is for obstructing the highway. The other is for failing to comply with a police condition to move to a specified protest area.
I firmly believe in the right to peaceful protest and remain deeply concerned about the impact of fracking on climate change and the wider environment.
