Lock-ons deployed with maximum precision and minimum disruption to local farm
In the last few minutes, 2 lock-ons have been deployed on the Great Habton Road, blocking access to the KM8 well site from both directions.
As heavy policing negates the possibility of meaningful protest on the bridleway or gateway to KM8, blockading the approach to the contentious fracking site has become necessary. This carefully planned operation was executed swiftly after the milk-tanker had taken receipt of the delivery from the neighbouring dairy farm, minimising disruption as much as possible.
A spokesperson for KMPC said:
“It is an outrage that Third Energy are attempting to force their operation on our community, in the face of so much opposition. Shame on Westminster and the North Yorkshire Police for betraying the people of Ryedale and failing to protect us from this unwelcome and dangerous industry.”
