Volunteer campaigners, together with Greenpeace UK, obstructed the entrance to a fracking site at Preston New Road in Lancashire. They intended to stop preparation works for the first UK frack for gas, after the government overruled the local council decision to reject planning permission.

If you were doing your weekly shop at Sainsbury’s last Saturday, you may have noticed that John West tuna was no longer in stock. ‘Hurray!’ you may have thought, ‘Sainsbury’s has finally decided to drop this horrific brand.’ If you looked a little closer, however, you would have noticed that Greenpeace was actually behind the lack of John West tuna in the tinned fish aisle. ;-)<--break->

I can see the giant towers of the Cottam coal power plant looming on the horizon from my perch on top of a heap of coal, in the carriage of a coal supply train.
