Living with activists in a fort in the woods

Oil companies estimate that 100 billion barrels of oil lie beneath the south of England. But a new breed of activists is opposing any drilling.

Claire Marshall has been living with some of the protesters, who built a large wooden fort on a proposed drill site at Leith Hill in Surrey. She follows the daily struggles of life in the camp until the day the bailiffs move in to get them out.
