Warwickshire coal gas extraction plan 'shocking'

14 August 2013 Last updated at 21:29 BST

The first application in Britain to extract gas from coal on land has provoked an angry response in Warwickshire.

Cluff Natural Resources wants to carry out deep underground coal gasification (UCG) in and around Bubbenhall.

The company's founder, Algy Cluff, insisted the process was safe and was unlike fracking.

But campaign group Frack-Off said there had not been enough testing and that UCG has never been used on this scale.
