The leader of a Fylde anti-fracking group is set to embark on another epic walk to London in protest at shale gas exploration.

Gayzer Frackman, from Frack Free Fylde, will set off from Lytham tomorrow to deliver a list of 12 questions on fracking to Prime Minister David Cameron, as well as Labour leader Ed Miliband and Lib Dem leader Nick Clegg.

It follows a similar walk to the capital last year, where Mr Frackman delivered a letter to Mr Cameron asking for a moratorium to halt the gas process in the UK.

He added: “It will be gruelling task. All told I will be walking more than 250 miles in around 10 days.

“My intention is to get there on November 5, Bonfire Night, to deliver the letter to the Prime Minister as well as other leaders.

“There are still major questions regarding shale gas to be answered.

“On the way I will be stopping at Knutsford, George Osborne’s constituency, as well as Witney, David Cameron’s constituency to raise the profile in their communities about the dangers of shale gas exploration.”
