Friends of the Earth North West campaigner Helen Rimmer, said:

“Lancashire residents already know that fracking is unwanted, not just here but anywhere in the country where fracking is proposed. But the extent to which this industry has failed to win over the public is undeniable.

“There is overwhelming opposition to fracking from Sussex to Lancashire. The list of countries banning fracking grows all the time, why should Lancashire just roll over and accept it?

“Instead of imposing an industry on communities, the government must let localism happen and prioritise clean, renewable energy that would cut climate emissions and at the same time create tens of thousands of new jobs”.

Survey details
1,148 adults in Lancashire took part in the survey, carried out online, from 26 May-6th June 2017. The figures have been weighted and are representative of adults in Lancashire.
