Michael Fallon, the former energy secretary, has described shale as an "exciting prospect"

“The report warned that communities close to drilling sites could see a large increase in traffic. Residents could face as many as 51 lorry journeys each day for three years, the study said.”

“It also warned of potential strain on facilities for handling the waste water generated by hydraulic fracturing, the process known as fracking, which involves pumping water, sand and chemicals into rocks at high pressure to extract gas.

“There were also concerns over the potential environmental impact on the countryside.”
