Protestors have set up a road blockade outside the Shell oil refinery in Rossport in Co Mayo this morning.

Two residents from the Rossport Solidarity Camp blocked the road used by Shell to access their site at Aughoose.

The campaigners say the action is being taken to highlight how Shell's recent oil leak off the coast of Scotland could happen in Mayo if their work is allowed continue.

The road is currently blocked and the group say they will continue the protest until gardaí cut the protesters free from the barricades.
