Yorkshire Coast Residents Warned About Fracking

Yorkshire Coast Residents Warned About Fracking

Published by the Yorkshire Coast Radio News Team at 1:22pm 30th January 2017.

People on the Yorkshire Coast are being given the facts about fracking.

The campaign group 'Frack Free Bridlington' held a public meeting at Bempton and Buckton village hall yesterday.

Their aim was to spell out the pros and cons of the controversial practice so people could make up their own minds.

Peter Godden from the group said:

"This whole area is earmarked for fracking exploration, we're all in licensed areas. Without the public knowing about it, it would go through without them realising the problems of increased HGV traffic, the possible contamination of the water and the effect it would have on tourism which is a major industry here."
