Canonbie coal bed gas extraction examined
A public meeting is to be held in a Dumfriesshire village amid concern about plans to extract methane gas from the surrounding area.
Buccleuch Estates and Australian company Dart Energy are exploring more than 20 coal bed sites around Canonbie.
The developers have held meetings in the village about the scheme, which has council planning permission.
However, there have been concerns it could turn a scenic rural area into an industrialised gas "factory site".
The public meeting takes place in Canonbie Village Hall on Tuesday at 19:00.
