By Emily Gosden
• Fracking planning application rejected by Lancashire council
• Major setback for Government hopes of shale gas industry
• Lancashire councillors vote 9-3 to refuse, with 2 abstentions
• Legal advice suggests Cuadrilla likely to win at appeal
Obviously not enough corrupt back hand brown envelopes changed hands yet. Keep up the good work, the fracking frackers will try again.
