A British lawmaker was among more than two dozen people arrested Monday at a protest against shale gas extraction in southern England.

Caroline Lucas, Britain's only Green Party member in Parliament, was led away by police from a sit-in at the gates of a drilling site near the village of Balcombe and put in a police van. Sussex Police said about 25 protesters were arrested for offenses including assault and "obstruction of the highway."
