Energy firm plans two fracking applications in Yorkshire

An energy company is planning to submit two planning applications to begin test drilling for fracking.

Dart Energy wants to start exploratory drilling at sites near York and Bawtry, near Doncaster, to investigate the potential for extracting shale gas from rock.

The first application is expected to be submitted next year, reports BBC Look North Business Correspondent Danni Hewson.
