Excessive force used against fracking protesters in Lancashire

Lancashire County Council originally refused an application for fracking by Cuadrilla at Preston New Road near Little Plumpton, but MP Sajid Javid, Communities Secretary, overruled them and gave the company permission.

The site is less than 6 miles from Springfields, a nuclear fuel manufacturing plant.

Fracking is known to cause tremors and earthquakes; it does not take a genius to work out that drilling in the vicinity of any nuclear plant is not a good idea.
