Police have thanked residents of Kirby Misperton for their patience and understanding as activity at the hydraulic fracturing site continues.

Superintendent Alisdair Dey, of North Yorkshire Police, said: "We have been working very closely with the communities of Kirby Misperton and the surrounding area throughout this process.

"I know that protest activity has had an effect on the local community, particularly over the last few weeks, but I want to reassure everyone that we are doing all we can to make sure residents can go about their daily lives safely and without disruption. It's challenging to balance that against the right of people to assemble and protest peacefully, so we'll continue to talk to people on all sides of the issue, to help make this a safe and peaceful protest.

"At times we have to close roads for the safety of everyone, including protesters and police officers, while we are moving people who are causing an obstruction to the highway. However, we're working hard to keep disruption to a minimum - we post updates on social media, officers provide motorists with information about road closures, and diversions are signposted.

"Local neighbourhood police officers have been very active in the area, discussing our role and addressing any issues - and that approach will continue. We've had some very positive feedback from local residents, so please contact us if you have any queries."
