Cuadrilla has received an official warning over failing to monitor groundwater properly at its Preston New Road fracking site.
Three anti-fracking campaigners have failed in their legal challenge to quash Cuadrilla’s injunction against protests at the Preston New Road shale gas site near Blackpool. They said they would seek permission to appeal.
The first anti-fracking campaigners found in contempt of court in the UK for breaching a protest injunction received suspended prison sentences this morning.
Most of the strongest earth tremors caused by Cuadrilla’s shale gas site near Blackpool were after the company’s last frack, according to data from the British Geological Survey (BGS).
Will the suspension of fracking at Cuadrilla’s shale gas site be lifted this month after a record-breaking earth tremor? Or will shale exploration in the Fylde region of Lancashire face another long delay?
“If you support fracking, you’re complicit in earthquakes” – Lancs businessman; Cuadrilla says “sorry for any concern”
A rally outside Cuadrilla’s shale gas site this afternoon called for a stop on fracking in Lancashire following the record-breaking bank holiday earth tremor.
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.
