Eight people have been arrested for public order and trespass offences during a protest at the Shell compound at Glengad, Co Mayo.

Gardaí said over 100 protestors took part in the demonstration and attempted to gain entry through security fencing.

Protestors said over 200 people from the local community and the Rossport Solidarity Camp Summer Gathering were involved.

They claim Shell does not have planning permission for the compound.
