"PROTESTERS have stopped work at the Cuadrilla shale gas site near Southport, after climbing on to a drilling rig. Environmental campaign group 'Frack Off' entered the shale gas rig at around 5.30am.
"Energy firm Cuadrilla Resources is exploring the area using 'fracking', a process of hydraulic fracturing of shale rock using high pressure liquid to release gas.
" 'Frack Off' said the action was timed to 'highlight the hypocrisy' of the Shale Gas Environmental Summit taking place in London on Wednesday."
