Second supplier pulls out of Cuadrilla fracking contract

Half an hour ago a second supplier pulled out of a contract with Cuadrilla for its fracking site at Preston New Road near Blackpool.

Opponents of Cuadrilla’s activities blockaded Moore’s Readymix Concrete in Lytham this morning.

Just before 9am, the company’s director, Roy Moore, sent an email to Cuadrilla confirming that he would not make further deliveries.
