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.

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".
