People living near Cuadrilla’s Lancashire fracking site have said there are “serious and fundamental errors” in the company’s interpretation of local geology.
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.
