- UK Oil & Gas said it had won a court injunction preventing protests at its projects sites, including near Gatwick Airport.

The Chancery Division of the High Court had granted an interim injunction against persons unknown, who may in future engage in unlawful protest activity.

'The judgement provides immediate High Court protection against those who use the specified unlawful actions and breach the injunction at our sites,' the company said.

Injunctions were granted in respect of Horse Hill and Broadford Bridge to prohibit protesters from entering and remaining on the sites, blocking the public highway, slow-walking in front of vehicles or climbing on to vehicles, among other restrictions.

Judge Male also found 'there is a good reason to believe the Horse Hill site is under a real and imminent threat' and that slow-walking 'is not a reasonable use of the highway', UK Oil & Gas said.
