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.
Campaigners for and against fracking are failing to deliver a decisive blow to their opponents, according to a new study.
Rathlin Energy announced today it has applied for consent to store crude oil on its exploration site at West Newton in East Yorkshire.
An oil exploration well in one of the most sensitive parts of the country has lacked scrutiny because of legal loopholes.
Last month, DrillOrDrop reported on proposals by Cuadrilla to vary its environmental permit for the Preston New Road fracking site.
The actor and UN human rights champion, Amber Heard, is among a group of campaigners, academics and environmentalists who are urging the United Nations today to ban fracking to protect the health of women in the UK.
Plans by IGas to test the flow of gas at its well at Ellesmere Port in Cheshire risk the health of people living nearby, campaigners will argue later this month.
