'Blockade' at Stanlow in fuel protest

Tankers and cars have blockaded Stanlow Oil Refinery in Cheshire overnight in protest of fuel prices.

Members of the Fuel Protest UK group protested at the oil refinery in Ellesmere Port for the fourth time in 3 months last night.

Cheshire Police say there were 15 people and seven vehicles involved. The vehicles were used to block the road to prevent traffic leaving the site for a short period of time until Police intervened to remove the obstruction.

The protesters dispersed a short time later. There were no arrests made and protesting was peaceful.
