ANTI-FRACKING protestors put on their scariest costumes in a bid to show their fears over a bank's support for the controversial process of drilling for gas.

Campaigners from Friends of the Earth dressed up to say "Fracking bankers are scary" outside Barclays Bank in North Street, Brighton.

The bank owns Third Energy, which recently gained approval to frack in Ryedale, North Yorkshire.

Carol Dawes of Brighton and Hove Friends of the Earth said: “We hope that Barclays' customers will be concerned to learn about its involvement in fracking and put pressure on the bank to change its stance."
