Anti-fracking protesters ‘tried to breach’ Preston New Road site

Police have blamed out-of-town protesters for an incident that has reportedly seen more than 100 people try to make their way on to the Preston New Road fracking site. A peaceful anti-fracking rally took place at Maple Farm before a ‘significant’ number of protesters made their way to the site where exploration company Cuadrilla wants to drill four wells and test frack for deep-lying gas, Lancashire Police said.
