Daily protests against exploratory drilling for fracking, or shale gas extraction, are continuing at Barton Moss in Eccles, Greater Manchester. 

Protesters have been blocking lorries bringing equipment onsite since 27 November. It is widely assumed that the exploratory drilling will begin this week. 

Protesters were set to hold an anti-fracking awareness day at a Tesco in Salford on Saturday of this week.
