A group campaigning against fracking at a site near Blackpool has called pnr14on the Prime Minister to honour her pledge to fight burning injustice and stand up for all, not just the privileged few.

Theresa May made the promise in her first statement as Prime Minister in Downing Street in July this year.

But the Preston New Road Action Group said “for Lancashire this is now proven to be empty rhetoric”.

The group was responding to the decision, announced a week ago by the Local Government Secretary, Sajid Javid, to give the go-ahead for fracking at a site at Preston New Road, Little Plumpton. He overturned the refusal of planning permission by Lancashire County Council in June last year.
