A public inquiry has resumed into proposals to frack for shale gas at a second site Lancashire. It's not examining the arguments for and against fracking, but road safety issues around the area of Roseacre Wood.

A protest was held outside, the Government have so far refused energy firm Cuadrilla permission for the site.

Transport also affects health, the quality of your sleep, the quality of the air you breathe and the quality of the life you're leading.

It's about that direct impact on human lives.
