A council has voiced its support for an anti-fracking campaign.

Brighton and Hove Green councillors travelled to Balcombe on Monday to show support for residents in their stand against fracking.

Protests have been ongoing since fracking company Cuadrilla began exploratory drilling just outside the West Sussex village.

Councillor Alex Phillips, who proposed the motion, said: “This Government is stubbornly supporting fracking companies, even when local residents voice their opposition. No one fully understands the significant long-term impacts of fracking.”
