Just one member of the council abstained and no one voted against.

Lawyers seek answers on Third Energy sale

A North Yorkshire resident is turning to the law to get answers about the proposed sale of the troubled would-be fracking company, Third Energy.

Eddie Thornton lives near Kirby Misperton, the site where Third Energy is still waiting for final consent to frack for gas. He has instructed a solicitor to ask questions of the industry regulator, the Oil & Gas Authority, which must approve the sale.
