Fashion designer Vivienne Westwood is to join an anti-fracking demonstration in Preston next week.

Large numbers of protesters are set to descend on the city on Tuesday as county councillors decide whether to grant Cuadrilla planning permission to frack for shale gas at two Lancashire sites.

Punk fashion designer Dame Vivienne is set to join a major rally against the proposals, the group announced today.

She will be one of several high profile speakers set to address the crowds.

The rally is called by Frack Free Lancashire, and supported by Friends of the Earth, 38 Degrees, Frack Off, Greenpeace, Reclaim the Power, and This Changes Everything
