Fracking go ahead: Anger at Lancashire shale gas decision

"Our lives will be ruined here," said Roseacre Wood resident Rosemary Conlon, following the government's decision to give the go ahead to fracking at the Preston New Road site in nearby Little Plumpton.

Communities Secretary Sajid Javid is minded to grant the fracking appeal for Roseacre Wood pending further consultation on highways conditions, the BBC understands.

Ms Conlon said: "We are going to have lorries going all times of the day and night...we will have air pollution, noise pollution, light pollution.

"We are not going to be able to sit in the garden and enjoy the beautiful scenery."
