An event at an anti-fracking protest

Here is a link to a report in the Manchester Evening News  21st February. 

The Independent Police Complaints Commission is to investigate the arrest of a man at an anti-fracking camp.  Dr Steven Peers is planning to sue Greater Manchester Police, claiming video footage shows an officer lying to detain him on ‘trumped up’ charges.  He was filming a demonstration at Barton Moss in Salford and arrested for refusing a breath test after the policeman accused him of driving to the site having had drink.  He was charged but the case collapsed at Manchester and Salford Magistrates' Court when prosecutors offered no evidence.

Worth watching ... !!!
