Home of fracking site guard attacked in Co Fermanagh: Petrol bombs thrown
The home of a security guard at a controversial potential fracking site in Co Fermanagh is believed to have been targeted in a petrol bomb attack.
Police in Enniskillen have appealed for information following the attack in Letterbreen shortly before 3.30am yesterday.
Opposition has been growing in Fermanagh after fracking company Tamboran announced plans to begin test drilling at a site in Belcoo this month.
The company employed a local private security firm to guard the site which is protected by razor wire and metal fences.
Ulster Unionist MLA Tom Elliott condemned the attack saying there was no excuse for dangerous, criminal activity.
Mr Elliott said: “The wider public must be allowed to have its opinions free from such intimidation.
"While many people, including myself have concerns about the proposals to carry out fracking in Fermanagh it does not justify terrorist-type campaigns against the process and those involved in it.”
