GREENPEACE volunteers staged a protest outside the Shell garage in Marsh.

They were asking passing motorists to support their campaign to stop the oil company from drilling for oil in the Arctic.

They spoke to drivers at the Shell garage and handed out leaflets to them, passers-by and the staff.

Jeff Rice, a Greenpeace volunteer from Mirfield said: “We’re protesting at the garage to tell Shell to stop drilling in the Arctic.

“We want the people of Huddersfield to add their name to our Arctic Scroll. Greenpeace has over two million names added to the Arctic Scroll and we’re on the way to 2.5 million.”
