Fracking Company IGas Trys To Intimidate Community In Upton
Fracking company IGas Energy has sent police and bailiffs to intimidate the community anti-fracking camp at Upton on the outskirts of Chester. The camp at Upton, is on a site where IGas has planning permission to drill a coalbed methane (CBM) exploration well. IGas’s planning permission expires in May 2016, if they do not start work.
The camp has a Pumpkin Carving Party! (Facebook) at 2pm on Saturday (24th Oct), if you are in the area and want to show your support. Read more about the fracking threat to the Cheshire and the North West here.
