From a, uh, highly reliable source:
"Running battles have broken out between police and protesters outside a British oil refinery facing mass job cuts.
Today violence erupted at the Coryton plant in Essex where its Swiss-based owners Petroplus have collapsed and left at least 200 out of work.
Essex police have arrested three people at the scene after they clashed with union members and political activists.
About 850 people work at the refinery in Stanford-le-Hope near Thurrock, and it is feared that unless another company steps in all the workers could lose their jobs."
Does anyone know more?
