Manchester to hear all legal challenges to Cuadrilla fracking rulings – against government wishes


Judges in Manchester are to hear all three legal challenges to rulings by the Secretary of State over fracking in Lancashire.

The government had wanted all the cases to be decided at one hearing at the Royal Courts of Justice in London.

But DrillOrDrop understands they are now to be considered at the High Court in Manchester because they are regarded as cases of local importance.
