Fracking - a 'minor change to the landscape' - PM

David Cameron has insisted that the whole of the country should accept fracking.

The Prime Minister said the process would not damage the countryside and cause only "very minor change to the landscape".

Writing in The Daily Telegraph Mr Cameron said: "I want all parts of our nation to share in the benefits: north or south, Conservative or Labour."

He added:

"If neighbourhoods can really see the benefits - and get proper reassurance about the environment - then I don't see why fracking shouldn't get real public support."
