November date for Preston New Road lock-on trial

Three local councillors were amongst 13 people who were involved in a lock-on protest at the gates of Cuadrilla’s Preston New Road site in July. One person has accepted a caution; seven of the group appeared at Blackpool Magistrates Court this week charged with obstructing the highway and offences under the Trades Union and Labour Relations (Consolidation) Act. All pleaded not guilty. The other five will appear at the court shortly.

The trial will begin on 13 November  and is expected to last all week.
