Business as usual for vandalised company

Cuadrilla HQ

Commenting on today’s vandalism at his company’s Lancashire headquarters, Francis Egan, CEO of Cuadrilla, said: “This pathetic, mindless stunt in vandalising our head office highlights the intimidator and criminal tactics frequently resorted to by anti-fracking activists.  The rational basis for their opposition is as lacking as their respect for the law or for others.

“We are getting on with our work developing shale gas for the benefit of Lancashire and the UK and will be supporting the Police in investigating this criminal act.”

Echoing the feeling of outrage amongst the business community of Lancashire, at this act of meaningless vandalism incurred at Cuadrilla’s  Office, Babs Murphy, chief executive of the North & Western Lancashire Chamber of Commerce added:  “We condemn this act of criminal damage at Cuadrilla’s Bamber Bridge offices. Lancashire businesses will not be intimidated by such desperate tactics and those responsible only discredit their cause.”
