They also inherit the outstanding planning permission for a gas processing plant at Thornton Dale which even fracking supporter Lorraine Allanson publicly opposed on two occasions.
When asked in Pennsylvania where he would put a gas processing plant, our MP Kevin Hollinrake said: “I have no idea. Not near my house”.

Leaking unburnt methane is 84 times more potent that carbon dioxide as a greenhouse gas.
