RYEDALE MP Anne McIntosh will visit Knapton Generating Station on Friday.

Miss McIntosh, chairwoman of the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs Select Committee, said: “There are many issues and questions to be answered by those wishing to propose deep shale gas fracking.

The location of the well, the amount of water used, the source of the water and its safe disposal, traffic movements and planning concerns all need to be addressed.”
