UK Fracking: 66% of Lancastrians oppose fracking

Two thirds of locals in Lancashire are opposed to fracking and over half of us think it's unsafe.

The survey from YouGov also shows that 73% of us think Lancashire County Council should have had the final say.

It's two years this week since they rejected the plans to frack in Lancashire - but were overturned by central government.

France has announced this week they'll stop granting oil and gas licenses for exploration.

Friends of the Earth North West campaigner Helen Rimmer, said:

"Lancashire residents already know that fracking is unwanted, not just here but anywhere in the country where fracking is proposed.

"But the extent to which this industry has failed to win over the public is undeniable.

"Friends of the Earth has always stood against fracking, together with residents on this issue.

"There is overwhelming opposition to fracking from Sussex to Lancashire.

"The list of countries banning fracking grows all the time, why should Lancashire just roll over and accept it?

"Instead of imposing an industry on communities, the government must let localism happen and prioritise clean, renewable energy that would cut climate emissions and at the same time create tens of thousands of new jobs".
