Protesters have locked themselves to the gates of a drilling rig site in a demonstration against fracking.
Up to 20 people are believed to be involved in the protest at Cuadrilla Resources’ drilling rig in Danesmoor, Chesterfield.
Four of the demonstrators, who are from anti-fracking group Frack Off, locked themselves to the site’s gate in a bid to prevent the rig moving to its fracking site in Lancashire. Fracking is the controversial extraction of gas from shale rock.
Derbyshire Police said they were monitoring the group and that it was a peaceful protest.
