Cuadrilla boss Francis Egan on the fracking go ahead

The decision to approve fracking in Lancashire was "perfectly democratic", says energy firm Cuadrilla's chief executive, Francis Egan.

Horizontal fracking can go ahead, the government has said, in a landmark ruling for the UK shale gas industry.

Communities Secretary Sajid Javid overruled Lancashire County Council's decision to refuse permission to extract shale gas at Cuadrilla's Preston New Road site at Little Plumpton, Lancashire.
