A public meeting for Freckleton residents has been arranged to discuss fracking.

A group of villagers want to raise awareness of fracking - the process of drilling and injecting fluid into the ground at a high pressure in order to fracture shale rocks to release natural gas - because of a proposed development site on Clifton Marsh.

It is feared that fracking could lead to problems such as earthquakes and water contamination.

After meeting with the Parish Council, it has been agreed that the meeting will held on Wednesday, January 8 at Freckleton Memorial Hall in School Lane from 7pm.

Residents will be given the chance to voice their concerns and opinions on the subject.

A spokesman for Frack Free Freck and the Parish Councillors said: “We look forward to hearing the views and opinions of residents on this subject.”
