A campaigner against the process of extracting or "fracking" gas from the ground is calling for a temporary Europe-wide ban on the practice.
Rosemary Rechter from 'East Kent Against Fracking' has been speaking at the European Parliament in Brussels. Her campaign follows the approval of plans for test drilling at Sandwich.
Fracking involves forcing water underground to force cracks to appear in the earth, which in turn releases gas, which can be burned for energy.
