Manure sprayed at Emma Thompson at anti-fracking demo

Double-Oscar winning actor Emma Thompson has had manure sprayed at her while taking part in an anti-fracking demonstration.

She had been taking part in a Bake-Off style spoof highlighting fracking with fellow campaigners just metres from a proposed fracking site.

However, the group did not have permission to be there and the farmer who leases the land, at Preston New Road near Blackpool, drove a muck spreader past the makeshift studio - hitting many of the crew with liquid manure.
