Anti-fracking protesters brought tractors to a demonstration in Preston city centre.
Farmers in their vehicles were among the protesters outside County Hall’s Pitt Street entrance on Thursday afternoon.
Several cars beeped at the group in support, but one man shouted abuse at them.
A ‘keep Lancashire frack free’ banner’ was also flown over the council HQ.
Dave Eaton, 41, from Fulwood, and his parter Jane Smith, attended the protest.
Dave said:“I’m concerned about what’s going on not only in Lancashire but in the world, how this technology is being used and the consequences to people’s lives.
Jane added: “The farmers are with us - 10 tractors came to the protest. It is not just people with dreadlocks who object to fracking, there are farmers who don’t want their milk and vegetables being contaminated. They want the community, and the council, to know how dangerous fracking is.”
Campaigner Bob Dennett, 66, from Ansdell, said: “We have had a very good response from the public.”
A full council meeting was being held inside County Hall at the time.
