Scuffles have broken out between gardaí and protestors during a demonstration today outside the controversial plant being built by Shell in Co Mayo.

Supporters of the Shell to Sea campaign group are accusing gardaí of heavy-handedness in dealing with demonstrators who tried to block a lorry from reaching the construction site.

The group says several of its supporters were knocked to the ground during the scuffles.

The protest was taking place as part of the long-running campaign against the refinery and pipeline being built by Shell to process gas from the Corrib field.
