The West Lancashire MP, Rosie Cooper, has urged people to oppose a plan to frack for shale gas near Formby.
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?
A network of anti-fracking groups has organised three public meetings to raise awareness about shale gas plans by Aurora Energy Resources near Formby.
Aurora Energy Resources has told residents it is planning to drill and frack two wells near the west Lancashire village of Great Altcar, on the edge of Formby.
