‘Possession Granted’ In Manchester Hearing Of Borras Fracking Case for people living in or visiting the wrexham area
This article is old - Published: Thursday, Nov 20th, 2014

A court hearing in Manchester involving the attempt to evict anti-fracking protesters from a field in Borras has ruled that possession be granted.

Earlier this week we reported that the anti-fracking campaigners occupying land on the Borras Commonwood had been served with a court summons, which took place at Manchester Court at 10:30am this morning.

However this morning a judge ruled that possession be granted on land in Borras at 11:59pm on Friday night for the land to be vacated and handed back to the farmer.

Frack Free Wrexham (@frackfreewxm) have since taken to Twitter to say: “Thanks to everyone involved in the legal side in Manchester this morning. Your help is extremely appreciated.

“Especially to @marcvjones for providing live updates on Facebook and Julie among others for the defence. We may have lost a battle but we can still win the war.”

There is a meeting of the group at the Cunliffe Arms tonight at 7pm where the next course of action will be discussed.
