Bianca Jagger in support of Balcombe oil drill protesters
Campaigners are continuing to protest plans for exploratory drilling in the village of Balcombe in Sussex, which could lead to the process of fracking to reach oil reserves.
Oil exploration company Cuadrilla wants to drill there but says it will apply for a fracking license if conventional drilling reveals a need for such a technique.
Those opposed to the plans include human rights activist Bianca Jagger.
She said: "It is good to have energy independence, but not at the risk of our environment and beautiful countryside."
