At this meeting Anthony Jackson from CTSA gave an update on current security threats to the sector and our region. Recent activity in some industrial cluster by the action group Just Stop Oil has seen disruption targeting oil and gas installations under the ‘disobey the dock’ and ‘stop fossil fuels’ campaigns. The group are currently less active in the Humber region.
