Fracking 'could devastate wildlife'

Fracking has the potential to devastate wildlife habitats across the UK, says research commissioned by leading wildlife and countryside groups.

The report Are We Fit to Frack? was launched by six organisations including the National Trust and the RSPB.

It was reviewed by the Centre for Ecology and Hydrology and is supported by a cross party group of MPs.

It contains proposals to limit the potential impact of fracking - a technique for releasing shale gas - on the environment.

Claire Marshall reports.
