Shale gas fracking to resume in Banks Southport

The Government has given the go ahead for fracking to resume in Banks, near Southport, after it was put on hold over a year ago.   Energy Secretary Ed Davey said today it could resume subject to new controls which aim to reduce the risk of seismic activity.

Protesters against fracking will continue to get their voices heard with planned protests in early 2013.
