Go-ahead given for drilling wells

Planning permission for up to two drilling wells at West Newton has been granted at a meeting of East Riding of Yorkshire council.

Campaigners gathered outside the council meeting in Beverley. They are opposed to fracking and staged a protest as the planning committee met to discuss proposals for an exploratory oil and gas well site at West Newton.
