A march left the Salford City stadium and worked its way towards the camp as the rainy weather thankfully eased up. There were various environmental and anti-fracking groups present as well as concerned individuals and families. They all made the journey with banners, chants and smiles, making for a peaceful and pleasant demonstration.

Unfortunately reports have just come in from the camp though of a violent arrest by the police ruining what has been an inspiring and peaceful day, with the use of unnecessary force.
