FoE hails Brent's 'fantastic news' on fracking

 Commenting on today's news that Brent Council is seeking to ban fracking in the London borough, Friends of the Earth’s Energy Campaigner Helen Rimmer said:
It’s fantastic news that Brent council is seeking to ban fracking in response to concerns of local residents.

Shale gas is another climate changing fossil fuel that needs to be left in the ground – the real solutions to our energy needs are renewables and slashing energy waste.

We expect other councils will follow Brent’s lead – huge swathes of the UK could be opened up for fracking when a new licencing round commences next year.
Earlier this year Brighton and Hove City council made a “declaration of intent" to keep the area free of fracking.
