"The Government have clearly sent the message to Shell, ‘you can do whatever you want’. Fortunately due to protest, the refinery remains unconnected to the gas field. If, as Shell planned, gas had been flowing by now, we would potentially all be dealing with a gas leak and explosion.”
Another Shell truck has got stuck. It is again believed that the truck, which has Dutch registration plates, was delivering parts of the Tunnel Boring Machine (TBM) for Shell. The truck is currently stuck at Briska, between Bangor and Bellacorick. Yesterday, 2 of the trucks that previously attempted to deliver parts of the cutting head of the TBM to Shell's tunnelling compound, returned to Bellanaboy. It is expected Shell will again attempt to move the TBM cutting head sections to Aughoose in the coming days. The truck that is currently stuck is about 50 ft long and has "Convoi exceptionnel" on the front. It's thought that no-one was injured in the incident.

At this point is where the truck began going in off the verge of the road.
