‘Possession Granted’ In Manchester Hearing Of Borras Fracking Case
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.
@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.”
Possession of the camp granted in 24 hours. The law is an ass.
