Caroline Lucas, the former leader of the Green party, has been arrested at a protest against fracking near Balcombe, West Sussex. The Brighton Pavilion MP was taking part in a road blockade - part of a day of action against the company Cuadrilla, which has been conducting test drilling in the area. Earlier on Monday, police served a Public Order Act notice, saying the crowd might cause serious damage to property or disrupt the life of the community.
