Barton Moss - locking on top of lorries (Day 48/13 Jan 2014)

A human blockade at the end of Moss Lane has left a convoy of tankers backed up onto the A57.

Protectors have swarmed the vehicles and climbed on top. Come down to support and stop fracking at Barton Moss.

Three protesters have been arrested at Barton Moss after they climbed two stationary lorries at the site refusing to get down for more than an hour.

Police brought in the Protester Removal Team to bring the men down, after they were formally arrested for obstruction.

The men finally came down after officers assembled temporary scaffolding and ladders and ordered the men to remove themselves from the lorries delivering to the iGas fracking site.
