A protest took place this afternoon in Preston outside the County Hall. I took all my images below on Canon 6D.
Below is an article about fracking published on the BBC News website.
"An application to start the first fracking operation in the UK for four years is being considered by a council.
Energy firm Cuadrilla wants to extract shale gas at Little Plumpton and Roseacre Wood on the Fylde Coast, in Lancashire.
Protests were held outside the hearing in Preston where 70 people - for and against fracking - will be speaking.
Peter Watson, who lives near the Preston New Road site in Little Plumpton, told councillors if the application was approved "our health, our quality of life and our property will be disastrously affected."
John Tootill, who runs a nearby farm nursery, claimed it would "destroy our business, way of life, four jobs and our home" and the environment would be contaminated." Taken from - http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-lancashire-33224982
