UK police asked university for list of attendees at fracking debate | The Guardian

Police asked a university to hand over a list of members of the public who were due to attend a public debate on its campus.

Canterbury Christ Church University, which had invited experts to debate the merits of fracking in an open forum, refused to hand over the list, and the police request has drawn sharp criticism, with one of the panellists branding it deplorable.

More than 200 people went to the debate to listen to and question a panel that included a retired geologist, engineers, a local councillor, an analyst from a thinktank and a campaigner.
