Greenpeace has launched a legal challenge to fracking in England to halt what it calls “reckless and presumptuous” plans for shale gas extraction across the country.
It made the announcement at a joint press conference with people whose homes are in the firing line of potential fracking sites, including residents from Balcombe in Sussex.
Greenpeace expects thousands of people to join the legal block, creating a patchwork of no-go areas for the fracking industry across the country.
