European Green MEP José Bové leads Balcombe fracking protesters

Hundreds of protesters have taken part in an anti-fracking rally led by a key campaigner from France.

The gathering, visited by European Green MEP José Bové, was held at Balcombe in West Sussex on Sunday.

The site was the scene of protests during the summer when energy firm Cuadrilla carried out test drilling for oil.

BBC South Today's Piers Hopkirk spoke to Mr Bové, Balcombe resident and fracking opponent Sue Taylor, and Energy and Climate Change Minister Greg Barker.
