Despite attempts by protectors to stop deliveries to the site, Cuadrilla has made progress on the rig this month.

Welcome to Frackpool Illuminations –¬†the illuminated pad can be seen clearly from many Fylde villages now, as well as the M55 and surrounding area.

There seems to be a problem with surface water. Where has it come from? Where is it draining to? What’s in the water? ¬†Whatever is on the surface of the pad is being transferred to local roads by lorries leaving the pad.
