Police under scrutiny as officers remove campaigner from second tower at N Yorks fracking site

Police in North Yorkshire have removed an anti-fracking campaigner from an observation tower next to Third Energy’s fracking site at Kirby Misperton.

To cheers from supporters, Eddie Thornton, was lowered to the ground in a canvas stretcher and taken to police van.

Campaigners say the tower, made from pallets over the weekend, allowed them to document the operations of police and security guards at the site entrance.

Farmers Against Fracking rally at KM8 site

Over 100 people came to the gates of Kirby Misperton fracking site to show their support for the rally of Farmers Against Fracking.    One of the organisers was Matthew Trevelyan, a father to two young children and a sheep farmer from the North York Moors.

He addressed the crowd saying

“Fracking isn’t just an environmental issue – it’s a livestock issue.

It’s a food issue. It’s a livelihood issue.”
