Warned over gas pipeline protests


Security measures have been increased at two Scottish companies amid fears they could be targeted by protesters opposed to their work on a gas pipeline in Ireland.

Staff at Technip and Transocean, who are contracted by oil giant Shell, were briefed after both companies were mentioned on a website supporting the cause of five men jailed over their opposition to the project.

The men, known as the Rossport Five, were imprisoned for 94 days last year after they broke an injunction banning them from protesting against the high-pressure pipeline being built by Shell from the Corrib gasfield to an onshore refinery at Bellanboy in County Mayo.
