Sajid Javid is being ‘reckless’ with lives to push fracking, campaigners say

Communities Secretary Sajid Javid has been accused of putting shale gas Anti-fracking signs in the village of Inskip, near Roseacre Wood, Lancashire.

Proposals by energy firm Cuadrilla to frack there and at another site at Preston New Road, near Blackpool, were thrown out by Lancashire County Council last summer. The firm’s appeal was heard at a public inquiry, with the verdict of planning inspector Wendy McKay sent to Mr Javid. He approved the plan for Preston New Road on the advice of the inspector and said he was “minded” to grant the Roseacre Wood application, subject to road safety issues raised by the inspector being addressed.
