More than 5,000 letters of objection to fracking were handed in to Lancashire County Council yesterday.
They were delivered by members of Frack Free Lancashire, an alliance of more than 20 anti-fracking campaign groups from across the county.
“Campaign groups engage with local communities on a daily basis”, said Ebony Ava Johnson of Frack Free Lancashire.
She added: “People told us they opposed Cuadrilla’s proposals but did not know how to object and the Frack Free Lancashire campaign was launched in response to this.”
She added: “We are witnessing a massive opposition to shale gas extraction, people are realising it is not in the best interest of the people of Lancashire.”
Cuadrilla are interested in fracking in Little Plumpton and Roseacre.
