Actress Daryl Hannah has been released from a Texas jail following her arrest as she protested against a pipeline designed to bring crude oil from Canada to the Gulf Coast.

The Tyler Morning Telegraph reported that Hannah was freed on a bond of 2,500 US dollars (£1,540) on Thursday night but faces criminal trespass charges.

Her release came hours after she was arrested in Winnsboro, about 100 miles east of Dallas.

Hannah and 78-year-old Eleanor Fairchild were arrested as they blocked heavy equipment in an attempt to halt construction of the Keystone XL pipeline through Fairchild's land.

Fairchild was released on a personal recognisance bond.

Hannah was also arrested in August 2011 while protesting against the pipeline in Washington.

Her manager Paul Bassis told the paper: "When people engage in civil disobedience, it's a last resort."
