WE WROTE: Parts of Teesside have been licensed by the Government for potential fracking. Companies have been given permission to explore and drill for hydrocarbons in areas of Redcar and Stockton.

YOU SAID: In some areas of South Bank and Grangetown I doubt anyone would notice a drilling rig appear, even more so if it goes up in an industrial part of the area. As for the damage to the environment this has been going on since the industrial revolution so I doubt the current generation will care much about it. A harsh but true reality of the situation added to that other factor ie money talks.

Richard Bailey Fracking under Wilton? Unacceptable. Historically I would be more concerned about the potential result of ironstone mining in the area.
