Campaigners dressed as polar bears target Shell petrol stations
Protest over Shell’s plans for Arctic drilling
MOTORISTS faced delays at petrol pumps after campaigners launched a protest over an oil firm’s plans to drill in the Arctic.
Seven Greenpeace activists were detained by police in Edinburgh as protesters targeted Shell petrol stations in the Scottish capital and London.
Some of the campaigners were dressed in white polar bear outfits as they attempted to cut off supplies to the pumps in protest at Shell’s plans for offshore drilling in the Arctic.
About 100 stations in London were the intended targets of protest, while 12 in Scotland were the subject of the demonstrators’ campaign.
