Bristol's St Patrick's Day protesters take to the forecourts.
Passing motorists were treated to traditional Irish music at Shell forecourts in Bristol on St Patrick' Day. During the morning rush hour protesters managed to shut one garage while the afternoon team turned drivers away at a second forecourt. Hundreds of leaflets were handed out explaining what Shell was doing in Mayo and tens of motorists beeped their horns in support. Until next time folks! Good luck.
