Balcombe group doesn’t believe Cuadrilla’s fracking promise

The No Fracking in Balcombe Society (NoFibs) is quoted in the Mid Sussex Times as saying it does not believe Cuadrilla will never frack at Balcombe.
Yesterday, a letter from the company to villagers said the oil-bearing rocks at Balcombe were naturally fractured and so it had no plans to frack.
But the Mid Sussex Times says this has not reassured villagers. It quotes Juliette Harris: “Cuadrilla and the government will do anything to remove the frack word from future exploration. With a 30 year lease signed with the Balcombe Estate fracking is clearly their intention. Whatever they were to call their activities, Cuadrilla have no social license to be in our community.”
