Opponents of drilling for shale gas from across England joined residents from the south Yorkshire village of Woodsetts outside a planning inquiry this morning.
The hearing, which opens at 10am, follows an appeal against refusal of planning permission by Rotherham Borough Council.
The inquiry, at Riverside House in Rotherham, is expected to last eight days.
The inspector, Katie Peerless, will hear evidence from Ineos, Rotherham council and Woodsetts Against Fracking.
DrillOrDrop will be reporting live news updates from the inquiry.
