This time it’s at The Long Man of Wilmington (yet again!) …..


It seems that no permanent damage was done this time (or has it?) but it might be expected that people who object to fracking would have more respect for scheduled monuments and be aware that damaging copycatting may be generated. We were in two minds whether to give it publicity but felt that we should, lest they thought they’d done no harm. They probably have – and they certainly haven’t helped the anti-fracking campaign!

Protestor Mike Laloë said, “We did our homework to make sure we didn’t do any damage to The Long Man. What we did was totally legal and the police were really supportive.”  We doubt that.
