Fracking: Vivienne Westwood on shale gas mining fears

16 July 2014 Last updated at 11:15 BST

Nearly half of the British people do not know what fracking is, says Vivienne Westwood who has taken part in protests against exploratory drilling.

The fashion designer claimed the UK government has no mandate for fracking, after David Cameron previously pledged to create the greenest government ever.

She spoke of her fears about pollution from shale gas extraction and added: "We need to wage war on climate change".

She will debate this personal film on Wednesday's Daily Politics, around 12:45 BST, with Conservative MP Ken Clarke and Labour MP Liz Kendall.

The full sequence will be on iPlayer for seven days.
