Gas protest fishermen re-arrested

Gas protest fishermen re-arrested

Two fishermen have been re-arrested and energy giant Shell was forced to abandon pipe-laying works as protests continued to escalate over the controversial Corrib gas project.

The father and son, who are members of the Shell to Sea group, were first detained last night on their fishing boats during protests in Broadhaven Bay.

Hours after being released, the men, aged 51 and 23, joined a second stand-off at sea and were again taken into custody.
