Fylde MP Mark Menzies has written to Government Energy minister Amber Rudd to say he supports Lancashire County Council’s decision to refuse Cuadrilla’s planning application for a shale gas exploration site at Roseacre.

Hydraulically fracturing and testing the flow of gas at Roseacre Wood would help Quadrilla determine how much natural gas could be extracted from the shale rock that lies over a mile beneath the surface.
