Have your say

Since beginning earlier this month, fracking has been suspended at the Preston New Road site on a number of occasions due to earthquakes.

Earthquakes in the area hit ‘red level’ last week, when two reached 0.8 on the Richter scale. If seismic sensors detect anything above 0.5 magnitude – far below what people can feel at the surface – Cuadrilla has to stop and review its operations.
