Response to injunction secured by Ineos relating to activity at shale gas exploration sites


“I’m disappointed but not surprised that Ineos have chosen to spend their time in the high courts, rather than in the local communities that will be affected by fracking. Had they done so, then they would have heard a loud and clear message that their plans are not welcome here.”


“Ineos may have secured the support of a court today, but they certainly do not have the support of the people of Weaver Vale, who will continue to be united in their opposition to shale gas exploration in our area.”


“If Ineos think that this judgement has put an end to protests and opposition, they are much mistaken. We will continue to fight any attempts to introduce fracking in Weaver Vale for as long as any threat remains”
