Estelle Dehon reports on one anti-fracking campaigner’s Court of Appeal challenge

Estelle is representing environmental campaigner, Gayzer Frackman, who has launched a legal challenge in the Court of Appeal against the government's decision to approve fracking at Preston New Road, near Little Plumpton, Lancashire, the biggest fracking operation to be given the go-ahead in the UK to date.

The appeal will seek to overturn a High Court judgment, which cleared the way for shale rock to be drilled into horizontally for the first time in the UK through a series of exploratory wells.

If the Court of Appeal challenge is successful the government will have to reconsider its decision to approve fracking at the Preston New Road site and may be forced to strengthen its regulatory regime before granting permission for fracking elsewhere in the country.
