Around 35 campaigners have demonstrated outside the Senedd in Cardiff Bay this afternoon, to oppose fracking in Wales.
The event was organised by Frack-Free Wales, after the Chancellor George Osborne signalled his support for the controversial method of extracting shale gas in last month's Budget.
Frack-Free Wales' plans for today's demonstration began after the Chancellor signalled the UK Government's support for fracking in last month's Budget.

I also want Britain to tap into new sources of low cost energy like shale gas.
So I am introducing a generous new tax regime, including a shale gas field allowance, to promote early investment.
And by the summer, new planning guidance will be available alongside specific proposals to allow local communities to benefit.
Shale gas is part of the future. And we will make it happen.
Watch: Fightback after Chancellor signals support for fracking
Around 200 campaigners are expected to protest outside the Senedd later against so-called 'fracking' in Wales.
Hydraulic fracturing involves pumping high pressure fluids into shale rock to recover gas and oil.
Campaigners 'Frack-Free Wales' say they have "grave environmental concerns" that the methods "are unsafe to our future generations."
They are planning to hand in a letter, addressed to the First Minister Carwyn Jones.
It is thought there is a substantial amount of gas under parts of South Wales.
The most controversial fracking issue here has centred around an application to test drill for shale gas at Llandow in the Vale of Glamorgan.
