Anti-fracking campaigners say they have “not even started fighting yet” in their campaign against Cuadrilla.

Barry Warner, from RAG, said: “What we’ve got at the moment is a classic case of David and Goliath.
“We’ve got a very rich organisation which I think is trying to steamroller their planning application through and I think what they’re hoping is people sleepwalk into it, but we have not yet begun to fight.”
