UK: Nine arrested as Upton anti-fracking camp is evicted

Police officials and bailiffs arrested nine anti-fracking activists as they evicted protesters from the Duttons Lane camp in Upton, Tuesday.

Campaigners from the Frack Free Dee Coalition set the camp up in April 2014 in a bid to prevent IGas Energy from carrying out testing. A court order was served in November telling them to leave the premises. On being removed, one activist said that nobody wants the fracking test to go ahead but that no-one is listening to the local residents.

Reports indicate that a total of 30 activists were evicted during the operation that began at 10.00 GMT and went on late into the night. One protester known as Hodge chained himself to metal bars at the top of a scaffolding structure meaning officials had to use a power tool and a crane to remove him.
