The daughter of musicians Ray Davies and Chrissie Hynde superglued herself to a fellow anti-fracking protester outside the main gate of an exploratory oil drilling site, a court has heard.
Natalie Hynde, 31, and Simon Medhurst, 55, are jointly charged over the incident at the main gate of energy firm Cuadrilla's test drilling plant near Balcombe, West Sussex.
Brighton Magistrates' Court heard the pair superglued their hands together while Medhurst had his arm around the gate during anti-fracking protests on July 31 last year.
Prosecutor Jonathan Edwards said a team of police officers who specialise in dealing with protesters used a solvent to release the pair before arresting them.
After being freed, Medhurst is alleged to have said words to effect of: "Good result. Looks like we managed to delay Cuadrilla for two hours."
Mr Edwards told the court: "Fracking, as you may know, is a controversial practice. It has attracted a good deal of publicity, both local and national, and as a result demonstrators had formed a large crowd round the entrance of the site."
One of the conditions imposed on Cuadrilla for using the site was to allow 24-hour access for emergency vehicles, he added.
Mr Edwards went on: "It is said that (Medhurst and Hynde) both glued their hands together with superglue whilst Mr Medhurst had his arm around the gate."
It meant that access to the site was hampered and Cuadrilla workers and contractors were prevented from going about their "legal right" to work there, Mr Edwards said.
During police interview, Hynde and Medhurst made no comment.
In a defence statement, Mr Edwards said the pair claimed Cuadrilla had no legal right to undertake work at the site due to irregularities in obtaining licences.
Both defendants said they were exercising their rights under Articles 10 and 11 of the European Convention on Human Rights.
Hynde, of Paynton Road, St Leonards-on-sea, East Sussex, and Medhurst, of High Street, Hastings, deny a charge of "besetting" the premises.
