SIX out of 10 Bri­tish kids have no idea tuna is a fish, 13% don’t know beef’s from cows and five per cent think ketchup comes from the ground, diner brand Ta­ble Ta­ble found. HERE’S one saucy gas pro­tes­tor with a tasty FRACK!

Bri­tain’s most pro­lific anti-frack­ing ac­tivist, Ma­rina Pep­per, was hauled away by cops this week af­ter try­ing to stop de­liv­er­ies be­ing made to a drilling site in Bal­combe, West Sus­sex. The 45-year-old Lib Dem coun­cil­lor was seen be­ing carted off by cops while show­ing off her ‘Don’t Frack My Fu­ture’ T-shirt. But Ma­rina hasn’t al­ways been found of wear­ing slo­gans – in fact, she barely used to wear clothes at all dur­ing her for­mer ca­reer as a top­less GLAM­OUR model.

Brunette Ma­rina was a drool-in­duc­ing pin-up in the mid-Eight­ies, and won count­less ad­mir­ers thanks to her all-nat­u­ral 34EE boobs.

Wind­sor-born Ma­rina, who was known as Ma­rina Baker dur­ing her boobs-out past, also be­come a Play­boy Play­mate when she was just 18.

The posh trained ballet dancer said: “I re­ally didn’t have any prob­lems about my body. It wasn’t ever an am­bi­tion. It was just one of those things.


“If you are a cer­tain height with a cer­tain look and a cer­tain pneu­matic sil­hou­ette sooner or later in that sort of com­pany it’s a bit in­evitable that you’d get naked.”

Ma­rina’s ally Anna Dart, of Frack Free Bal­combe, said around 100 peo­ple had turned out to protest, in­clud­ing a preg­nant woman who stood in front of a truck.

She added: “We are not go­ing away. We have al­ready caused sig­nif­i­cant delays. Over 90% of the Bal­combe com­mu­nity have said they sup­port non-vi­o­lent ac­tion.”

Su­per­in­ten­dent Steve Whit­ton, of Sus­sex Po­lice, urged ac­tivists to protest ‘peace­fully’.

Frack­ing is the process of drilling down into the earth to ex­tract gas con­tained within rock lay­ers.

But crit­ics ar­gue that it can cause earth tremors and con­tam­i­nate ground­wa­ter.
