ANTI-FRACKING campaigners took part in two slow walk protests in front of convoy vehicles.

Around five protestors walked along Habton Road, Kirby Misperton, at 10am and 3.30pm on Monday.

After 20 minutes, the convoy vehicles were able to continue their way along the road into the hydraulic fracturing site.

Police Liaison Officers, whose role it is to engage with the protest community at the site, liaised with protesters to facilitate the slow walks.

Superintendent Alisdair Dey, of North Yorkshire Police, said: "We'll continue to support and protect people engaged in peaceful protest activity at Kirby Misperton.

“Officers today assessed the situation, engaged with the protest community, explaining what was safe and reasonable in the circumstances."
