Rotherham Council voted unanimously against a proposal from Ineos to begin testing there in January, but a final decision will be made by an independent inspector.

People from all different parts of the region and indeed down in to the Midlands saying, 'no fracking here, no fracking anywhere'.

What we have now is a really very united, organised movement of people who are determined to defend their homes, their communities, their countryside and their planet against fracking.
