The Bolton News had some good news to report today
‘WHAT a fantastic decision it is that Westhoughton Town Council has voted against fracking for shale gas or coal bed methane in the town.
Cllr Karen Lawrinson is championing the need to protect Westhoughton citizens from earth tremors, unpleasant odour emissions, drilling under homes, business premises and community buildings and destruction of land and nature in Westhoughton. Also water pollution, roads and land damage by heavy trucks, ill health to workers from chemical exposure, and public health risk to citizens from polluted water and variant chemical and gas exposure in the air.’
