Chrissie Hynde - Chrissie Hynde's Daughter Can Return To Fracking Protest Site

Chrissie Hynde and Ray Davies' activist daughter has been given the green light to continue her protests against fracking in south-east England after magistrates eased her strict bail conditions.

Natalie Hynde was arrested last month (Jul13) after gluing her hands to those of her partner Simon Medhurst at the entrance of a proposed gas drilling site in Sussex.

The 30 year old appeared at Crawley Magistrates Court in England alongside another 14 protesters on Wednesday (14Aug13) and pleaded not guilty to disrupting the work of Cuadrilla, the energy firm behind the planned drill.

Magistrates handed Hynde and her fellow accused unconditional bail, overriding the police bail she was handed after she was charged, which banned the protesters from returning to the site in the village of Balcombe.

Magistrate Michael Milne told the court, "I do not believe the police have given us sufficient grounds that they will commit further offences if they return to Balcombe."

The case was adjourned until 2 October (13).
