WEST ROXBURY (CBS) — Nearly a dozen people broke into the natural gas pipeline work site in West Roxbury Thursday morning in an attempt to disrupt construction.

Three people locked themselves to the entrance gates of the site’s metering and regulation station. Eight others stood in the dug up street where construction was taking place.

Thursday’s protest is the latest among ongoing demonstrations that have taken place at the site of Spectra Energy’s West Roxbury Lateral pipeline.

In June, the daughter of former Vice President Al Gore was one among 23 protesters charged with trespassing and disturbing the peace after sitting in a trench to block construction.
