Lancashire residents are demanding to know whether emergency planners have updated the risks from Cuadrilla’s shale gas site following the UK’s strongest fracking-induced earth tremor.
Anti-fracking campaigner Helen Chuntso reports on an investigation into the sale of Third Energy’s onshore gas business. She examines the importance of the deal for funding decommissioning – an issue now attracting cross-party political attention.
A Lancashire campaigner is going to court to try to stop Cuadrilla fracking near Blackpool. He says he fears the authorities have failed to protect local people from emergencies at the site.
An opponent of fracking has won an eight-month campaign to force Lancashire’s Fire and Rescue Service to release information about emergency planning at Cuadrilla’s shale gas operation.
