Third Energy is expected to submit its planning application to frack its well at Kirby Misperton in North Yorkshire this week. Campaigners against the plans have said they were very disappointed that the company was going ahead, despite local opposition.
Frack Free Ryedale said around 1,000 people marched through Malton yesterday (Saturday 25th April 2015) in the biggest ever anti-fracking rally in Yorkshire.
Members of the campaign group, Frack Free Ryedale, welcomed the deferral of a decision on plans by Third Energy for a re-injection well at Ebberston Moor South.
Anti-fracking campaigners say the Ryedale area of North Yorkshire could see up to 950 fracking wells.
