Helen Steel reports:
There is a warning tonight that the economic lifeblood of part of North Yorkshire could be put at risk by plans for the gas drilling technique fracking.

If it goes ahead, it would be the first fracking since the Government called a temporary halt when one well near Blackpool triggered earthquakes.
Those in favour say it will help secure our future energy supply, but critics are warning of the risk of toxic radiation, more earth tremors and a threat to tourism and farming.
