Protesters' joy as Lancashire fracking bid is refused

Anti-fracking protesters marched through Preston to celebrate a council decision to block fracking at a site in Lancashire.

Energy firm Cuadrilla wanted to extract shale gas at the Little Plumpton site between Preston and Blackpool.

Lancashire County Council rejected the bid on the grounds of "unacceptable noise impact" and the "adverse urbanising effect on the landscape".
