Group to campaign against fracking
9:12am Thursday 10th October 2013 in News
PROTESTERS have set up North Yorkshire’s first anti-fracking group to oppose shale gas exploration in Ryedale.
Frack Free North Yorkshire was set up after a meeting in Pickering in September.
The meeting was hosted by national organisation Frack Off, and now the county’s own protest group has been formed.
The community group wants to oppose shale gas exploration via hydraulic fracturing, or “fracking”, in Ryedale. The first meeting will take place on Monday, at 6.30pm at the Memorial Hall, Potter Hill, Pickering.
