Government urged to ditch ‘bonkers’ fracking plan
Fracking is controversial, this much we know. But the government has ratcheted-up tensions with plans that could see shale gas projects fast-tracked in future.
Those tensions were particularly apparent this week at a packed out parliamentary debate.
Conservative, Labour, Liberal Democrat and SNP MPs lined up to lambast the proposals and call for a rethink.
It comes as Cuadrilla announced that it had produced the first natural gas from its site in Lancashire.
