Fracking meeting interrupted by campaigners

Fracking campaigners have been warned after interrupting a meeting hearing a controversial drilling application.

West Sussex County Council’s planning committee is considering an application by energy company Cuadrilla Resources to carry out more test-drilling near Balcombe.

But the committee was interrupted by members of the public and the council adjourned and cleared the meeting room shortly after 12pm.

The decision was taken to reconvene at around 12.30pm with the public warned not to interrupt again.

Please justify the assertion that the meeting was interrupted by campaigners, rather than members of the public.

Why would someone who wasn't a campaigner disrupt the meeting?
