A High Court judge hearing the challenge to INEOS’s injunction against anti-fracking protests has reserved his judgement.

Mr Justice Morgan said this evening:

“I’m not going to give a decision. I think the amount of material I have to digest and weigh up and consider means it is not fair to give a decision tonight. I will try to give a decision as soon as possible.”

He gave no indication of timing but said the interim injunction would remain in place until the decision.

The three-day hearing has heard argument from INEOS and lawyers for two challengers: campaigners Joe Boyd and Joe Corre, son of fashion designer, Vivienne Westwood.

The evidence and statements filled 32 ring binders and the legal teams topped 25.
