The future of Ryedale?

A very good letter appeared in the Malton Gazette & Herald this week, from Jill Hopkins of Great Barugh. She makes many good points about the dangers of fracking, and reiterates concerns we have about increases in heavy traffic, noise, light and air pollution and falling house and property prices.

She also mentions a documentary on how shale gas is extracted using fracking, which is on the Sky PBS channel on September 12 at 10.15am, called “Fracking; shattered earth”. Try and watch if you can.

Read Jill’s letter here.
