Sustainability stats special: Fracking in numbers

With a fracking-storm brewing in Britain ahead of a crucial vote in the Commons, edie has sifted through the noise to bring the most important numbers you need to know about fracking in the UK.

The Infrastructure Bill could potentially pave the way for fracking in the UK, by weakening property rights in favour of energy firms planning to frack under people’s homes and allowing fracking firms to put ‘any substance’ under people’s homes.

But this impending deadline has sparked more furious backlash from protestors – this time in Lancashire, where the first fracking well-pads could be drilled and from activists around the country who have delivered a massive petition to the Prime Minister.
