David Cameron has said he wants local communities to feel the benefit of the fracking industry as he defended Government plans to encourage the controversial practice.
Councils which approve fracking projects will be allowed to keep millions more in tax revenue under plans announced by the Prime Minister today.
Mr Cameron dismissed accusations that the move amounted to a bribe to local councils to ignore the environmental concerns around fracking, insisting that all concerns should be met "head on".
