Cuadrilla understands that there are five protestors on site, four of whom are attached to the machinery. The Police are present on site and we are working with them to bring the protest to a peaceful end. Our priority is the safety of both the protestors and our own staff on site.
Throughout our time working at the Banks site, and the others in Lancashire, we have been very open, inviting local people, stakeholders and the media around the site. Over 50 local people and their elected representatives have been shown round the Banks site and we would have been delighted to show these protestors around rather than them need to carry out this potentially dangerous occupation of the drilling rig.
